RAPE



"The day she asked when she would receive money, the husband, who she described as a construction manager, began grabbing her and forced her to the wall. She said she was screaming, but knew that nobody would come to her aid because the wife was out shopping and the two children were at school.

"'He ripped my dress off and forced himself onto me. He raped me. This was just the beginning,' she said, tears beginning to form in her eyes.

"'He would find me almost daily and rape me. He would force me to work naked in his office if nobody was home. He would tie me up and repeatedly force himself onto me over and over for hours if the wife was out of the house. I can’t imagine that I experienced this,' she added.

"After four months of constant rape and sexual violence, H was able to escape late in the night after she found her door was unusually unlocked. She met up with three other Ethiopians and they fled back across the border into Yemen, where they were flown out of the country this fall as part of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) flights.

"Her story is not unusual, she says, revealing that at least three other Ethiopian women were raped while working in Saudi Arabia."
