We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Stupendous!

That women would have nothing to say about the place of women in Saudi society. And that not one of them would find this a bit awkward!

I sure hope they understand how lucky they are that the modern world has let them keep those privileges. They must also have a hunch that it wont remain like this much longer - hell, they watch TV, they read the news...

Read on.

 

The conference on the subject of ‘women in society’ was notable for its lack of women

An image of a conference in Saudi Arabia on the topic of “women in society” – with not a single female present – has gone viral.

The picture features row upon row of men in traditional headscarves and white thobes. A single Westerner in a flannel shirt is the only person breaking up an otherwise uniform sea of what appear to be Arab men.

We traced the picture back to Beladalorb.com, which says it was published in Saudi newspaper Okaz last year.

The conference was reportedly held at the University of Qassim and was apparently attended by representatives of 15 countries.

Much is being made of absurdity and hypocrisy of the image, but when you consider Saudi Arabia is a country where women are not permitted to drive, it seems less so.

Religious police in the Gulf Kingdom which is governed by Sharia Law only recently lifted a ban on females riding motorbikes and bicycle...

It is illegal for Saudi women to travel abroad without male accompaniment. They may only do so if their guardian agrees by signing a document know as a ‘yellow sheet’ at an airport or border crossing.

In November 2012 it emerged women were being electronically monitored with authorities using SMS to track them and inform their husbands of their whereabouts.

And it was only in 2011 that women were given the right to vote and run for office in municipal elections in 2015.

Because women are brainwashed by what so called "my guardian knows what's best to me"
This proves the Saudi Arabia needs a feminist organization!

They're launching campaigns now,, lately, but not late :) ,, which matters more than these silly conferences,, last campaign was run and launched by Saudi women for helping Saudi victims of domestic violence.. link

If you're guardian is a good guy = You're lucky.. If not = then, you're in a big trouble! LOL but true!

I repeat what I said before, in Muslim countries, modernity will arrive through women. Same way civil rights were brought about by African-American slaves.

Absolutely. I like what you said,, Gotta borrow that :)
