Suspended together . . .

"Suspended Together"
 The doves hung in this instillation  by Manal AlDowayan 
each carry a donated permission document from leading women of Saudi Arabia. 
A document that each & every woman has to have there to enable them to travel.
 The doves in actuality, signifying the total lack of freedom these women have.

That is amazing, beautiful and so sad.
Reminds me of the series of biographies, The "Princess" books about a Saudi princess. Amazing. I think it's Princess Sultana, then Princess Sultana's daughters ... mind blowing and fast reads. There are three books and were written in secret.
