    Well that's weird.. As a Saudi myself, 3 of my sisters have bikes, wear brands shoes, and we're not that much of a "liberal family".. I'm not quite sure why they paint the picture that a Saudi girl can't even acquire a bike. And girls don't actually wear "regular black shoes" like the video is saying, nor is it forbidden to acquire football clubs items. I do understand that the movie is trying to show Women's rights violations of some sort, but did they really have to say lies? There are other real violations, such as driving and a custodian's presence for official transactions, but this is too much.
