Press Conference USA

PRINCESS BASMAH BINT SAUD Host Carol Castiel and VOA Urdu Service Reporter Sarah Zaman speak with a member of the Saudi Royal family who says Saudi women are “entrapped in a modern form of slavery.” Princess Basmah Bint Saud, businesswoman and blogger based in London and the daughter of the late King Saud, argues that economic diversification leading to job creation must replace dependency on oil revenues if Saudi Arabia is to grow and to stave off further social and political unrest.
