The hit „Hwages“ by the director Majed Alesa from Saudi Arabia went viral in the last three weeks. It was posted on Youtube on December 23th, 2016 and has already more than 5 million clicks. In the music video, you can see women who drive on skateboards and play basketball all while wearing a Niqab. In their song, they are singing about men driving them crazy and are openly protesting against the discrimination of women in Saudi Arabia. It is an example for a great project for Women’s rights and equality in countries in which misogynist laws are justified by religion or ideology.
