Women's rights website blocked by telecommunications authority

(RSF/IFEX) - The Saudi Telecommunications Authority has blocked access to the Voice of Saudi Women website ( http://www.saudiwomen.net ) for opposing government policy. Reporters Without Borders joins the Saudi Human Rights Commission and the Saudi Human Rights Association, as well as the website's members and visitors, in condemning the measure.

The Voice of Saudi Women site has a number of analytical reports about the status of women in Saudi society. It monitors legislative changes and denounces impediments to women becoming effective actors in Saudi society.
