More on Nazia Quazi

Nazia Quazi is the Canadian citizen held against her will in Saudi Arabia because her father has decided that she should stay there and the laws of Saudi Arabia give him all the power and her none. The Canadian government isn't doing much to help her.

As this is is about the most obvious example of patriarchy (the power of the fathers), it deserves feminist attention.

Tim Bousquet interviewed Nazia recently over the phone. You can read what she says here.
