In this edition, we turn our attention to Saudi Arabia, which this week hosted the Women 20 (W2​0) online summit, attended by some of the most powerful women from across the globe. However, there were also many missing faces. Among them were some of the conservative kingdom's most prominent activists, like Loujain al-Hathloul (pictured). According to rights groups, some of these women have faced abuse while imprisoned, including electric shocks, flogging and sexual assault. For more on this story, we speak to Hiba Zayadin, a Gulf researcher at Human Rights Watch.
