Qatari activist resurfaces on social media, four months after she disappeared from public view
Noof al-Maadeed, who is in her early 20s, posted videos from an unknown location and on a new Twitter account, giving assurances she was safe and well.
“Noof is here. Noof is alive. Noof isn’t dead,” she said in one video, smiling and wearing a black hijab.
But why was she unable to contact for four months?
Maadeed has used her social media accounts to denounce Qatar’s guardianship laws, which require adult women to obtain male approval for everyday activities.
