7 May 2015 marked one year since Raif Badawi was sentenced to 10 years in prison and 1000 lashes. He had since received 50 lashes in public on 9 January 2015.
Raif has so far been spared further flogging, initially on medical grounds and later for unknown reasons, however he remains behind bars with no clear movement in his case.
This International Women’s Day, 8 March 2015, we look back 20 years to a historic UN meeting in Beijing that saw world leaders make bold commitments to women’s rights. Stella Jegher, Chair of the Amnesty International Women’s Human Rights Network, sheds light on how Amnesty made a difference to the debate then – and continues to do so now.

Where: Outside Saudi Arabian Embassy, 6 Fitzwilliam Square East, Dublin 2, Ireland
