Rahaf Mohammed was eighteen years old when she dramatically escaped from Saudi Arabia, capturing worldwide attention through her Twitter account. The daughter of a politician, Rahaf was raised according to an oppressive interpretation of Islam in which women and girls are given virtually no freedom. Thanks to a public plea for her life made on social media, she was eventually granted asylum in Canada, where she still resides, advocating for the freedom and empowerment of women.
