Saudi sisters on run from authorities – and father they say abused them

Two sisters, who say they suffered years of abuse at the hands of their own father, have become the latest Saudi women to flee the Kingdom.

Draconian guardianship laws mean every Saudi woman is assigned a male guardian, usually a father or husband, whose permission is needed to marry, travel and even play sports. Women, throughout their lives, are always treated as minors.

Dua and Dalal say they fear being “disappeared” if their father tracks them down.
