Saudi Women Filmed Themselves Breaking Rules In The Name Of Equality

The newly released music video quickly went viral.

Saudi Arabian women are so done with not having full rights in their country. 

A recently released music video shows niqab-clad women skateboarding and wearing neon. It's a response to Saudi Arabia's requirement that women get permission from male relatives to do nearly anything. 

Women in Saudi Arabia aren't allowed to do many of the activities shown. 

The lyrics are political and damning, wishing for men to die

Despite the women's faces being covered from wearing their niqabs, what they're doing is risky. 

The video quickly went viral and has received mixed reviews.
