Saudi Arabian video on women's rights goes viral

A video of a pop song that highlights the oppression of women in Saudi Arabia has amassed millions of views on social media.

The video entitled 'Hwages', loosely translated in English as 'Concerns', shows women in Saudi Arabia skateboarding, playing basketball and dancing.

Created by media production company 8ies, the video has been viewed nearly three million times on YouTube since it was uploaded in late December 2016.
