Activist shuns obligatory abaya in Saudi Arabia

The following video is brought to you courtesy of the RT YouTube Channel. Click the video below to watch it now.

The woman in the video is one of the rebel females who have started to shun the obligatory abaya when they leave the house in a bold push for social liberties by young Saudis. Defiant Mashael al-Jaloud, 33, turned heads and drew gasps as she strutted through a Riyadh mall last week without a body-shrouding abaya.

Last year Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman hinted during an interview with CBS that the dress code may be relaxed, saying the robe is not mandatory in Islam.
