Women living in Saudi Arabia have long been fighting for their rights -- through art, through activist movements and through social media. 

Recently, a hashtag titled 'Because I'm a Saudi Woman, I Cannot' (لاني_سعوديه_ما_اقدر) saw a number of women document their personal stories on what it's like being a woman in the kingdom via a series of tweets. 

Many criticized the kingdom's guardianship system, which prohibits women from traveling, marrying and working without the permission of a male guardian, typically the husband, father or brother. 

Some pinpointed how the current system is a major setback for personal progress and success. 

Others challenged the hashtag - sharing their own achievements and successes despite the limitations. 

One woman just wants to live her life as a "normal human"

"Because I'm a Saudi woman: I cannot get a job, rent a house, pursue my studies, get medical treatment, travel, be the guardian of my children, drive."

Some mocked the kingdom's driving laws.

"Imprisoned between walls ... only because she's a woman."

"There are some women who haven't lived their lives at all, haven't seen the streets in months, prohibited from going out with friends. These women are imprisoned between four walls ... only because they're female!"

"Imprisoned for life."

"Because I'm a Saudi woman: I cannot be released from prison without the consent of my male guardian. If he refuses to give his consent, I could be imprisoned for life."

"Because I'm a Saudi woman ... I'm a burden."

"Because I'm a Saudi woman, I can not be independent. I'm a burden on the male guardian in my life because I have to depend on him for everything."

"It really hurts that your nationality kills your dreams."

Not everyone agrees.

Some want the negativity to come to an end.

Earlier this year, CNN published an article titled "The Saudi women afraid to go home," telling the stories of women who fled the kingdom for fear of oppression, better education opportunities, and for wider career prospects. 

But, the story failed to provide a voice to women who remained, and those who are invested in social change. 

After the article went live, several women in the kingdom took to social media with an online campaign, titled: "#I_Choose_To_Stay".

The hashtag sparked a discussion among Saudi women who pitched in on the conversation, listing their reasons for staying, and fighting.

It all started with a tweet from Reema Bandar Al-Saud, a Saudi princess, entrepreneur and philanthropist. 

"All women around the world face unique struggles CNN," she tweeted, leading others to express discontent at the story. 

Women in the kingdom won't back down without a fight. They've challenged stereotypes time and again. And this is only the beginning.
