    AUTHORS: Nouf Alajmi

    JOURNAL NAME: Art and Design Review, Vol.7 No.2, May 10, 2019

    ABSTRACT: This research discusses two important and long-controversial topics in Saudi society: women and the arts. The focus is on the difficulties women in Saudi Arabia have experienced in different aspects of life and how they are depicted in the art of many Saudi female artists’ expressions of their acknowledgment of the issues and their disagreement with the current status quo. This study presents a survey of the history of women in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, highlighting the obstacles they have overcome throughout the years to achieve a conservative form of liberty. The challenges these women have encountered throughout the years are revealed and how Saudi female artists have highlighted these challenges in their works of art to help raise awareness to these issues.
