The case of Rahaf Alqunun, which has exploded on social media and made headlines around the world, has drawn attention to Saudi Arabia's strict guardianship system. This is how it works.

Lawyers and activists warn the high-profile case of Saudi Arabian teenager Rahaf Alqunun could increase the risks faced by women in repressive countries, even as it inspires more to make attempts to escape.

Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun told SBS News her father and brother being in Bangkok is a “danger to her.”
