Women in Sana'a are reportedly banned from travelling without males' guardianship across Houthi-controlled areas. The decision was issued by Houthis, last month, according to journalist Fatima al-Aghbari. Fatima knew about the issue when she tried to book herself a bus ticket to travel from Sana'a to Aden. She was not allowed to book the ticket unless her brother booked it for her. I wrote this piece for Daraj in Arabic about the issue.
