Saudi Arabian women

by Ayame
(Yokohama)

In Saudi Arabia, women are of low social standing. It is because of Islam. They don't have the right to vote or travel alone. Moreover, they are prohibited to walk alone! Surprisingly, they have a custom of polygamy. I can’t believe!

One sees this culture as a terrible discrimination against women, the other as a protection for women. It is difficult to understand different cultures, but very interesting, too. It is beyond my imagination!

Anyway, I am happy to be born a woman in Japan!

Ayame, I'm happy you were born a woman in Japan too, otherwise we would have never had a chance to meet! :-)

Thanks for your cultural observation of Saudi Arabia...
