  1. # ME TOO—-HAS EMBARRASSED SOME LEADERS
    # Me Too is effective tool to create a Good Government and to prevent women from Harrassment—the purpose of fasting is also to prevent a man harrass women—

    If Saudi women have a freedom to say; # Me Too— I believe many men will be caught and put in Jail— unfortunately women do not have the right to speak up—

    I strongly support this excellent idea to protect women from harrassment.

    All love ❤️
