"The report, "Boxed In: Women and Saudi Arabia's Male Guardianship System," examines in detail the panoply of formal and informal barriers women in Saudi Arabia face when attempting to make decisions or take action without the presence or consent of a male relative. As one 25-year-old Saudi woman told Human Rights Watch, "We all have to live in the borders of the boxes our dads or husbands draw for us." In some cases, men use the permission requirements to extort large sums of money from female dependents"--Publisher's description.
