By examining what women organizations in Saudi Arabia have made public on internet I have investigated how they argue in order to achieve freedom, equality and democratic rights.

The conclusion is that all arguments are for more freedom but expressed differently. The liberal feminists argue for more rights while the radical put all the blame of the situation on men. (Less)
