Meet The Women Under The Abayas in Saudi Arabia: Baraa Luhaid

Saudi’s first-ever street-style book succeeded in shattering stereotypes and demystifing the way the world views women from the Kingdom. Bazaar chats with some of the women featured in the second edition of Marriam Mossalli's Under The Abaya. 

Baraa started Saudi’s first women’s modest sportswear brand, founded Spokes Hub, a gender-inclusive cycling community, and sits on the board of the Saudi Cycling Federation, part of the General Sports Authority. She declares, “When I advocate for women’s cycling, I’m advocating for women’s independence.”
