King Saud UniversityThe research chair on 'the Role of Women in Developing Society' at King Saud University, sponsored by Sheikh Alrajhi's charities has given its support to the campaign launched by the Human Rights Agency to promote women's rights. This campaign was inaugurated early this month (Muharram) under the patronage of the Spouse of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and was intended to promote the cultural awareness of Saudi women with regard to their legal rights through a series of training sessions on women's rights and their material and moral duties in light of Islamic jurisprudence (Shari'a).

Dr. Noura bint Abdullah Al Adwan, the Chair Supervisor, declared that cooperation with the Human Rights Agency is the result of the strategy put forward by the Chair in order to support Saudi women in their developmental activities through partnership with official and non-governmental institutions.

These specialized sessions on women's rights are considered the first of their kind in this respect and they include a variety of activities.

Dr. Nora bint Abdullah added that through this project the Chair aims to put forward a scientific strategy that promotes women's rights and duties and is intended to raise Saudi women's legal awareness in order to secure a safe and stable life for these women. This would eventually have positive repercussions on the cohesion of the Saudi family.
