Rep. Lois Frankel (D-FL12) Introduces H. Res. 129

Congresswoman Lois Frankel (D-Fl21) introduced legislation calling on the United States Congress to continue urging Saudi Arabia to release women’s rights activists currently imprisoned in the Kingdom.

It’s impetus was found in the allegations that at least ten women are currently being detained and experiencing torture in Saudi Arabia. The bill mentions by name, Hatoon al-Fassi, Aziza al-Yousef and Loujain al-Hathloul. The bill comes on a day when the House debates invoking the War Powers Resolution in regards to the US’s involvement in Yemen.
