2016 international dating site with due love in saudi arabia
As social media users gushed their approval, media outlets rushed to identify her handsome new love interest.It didn’t take long before he was revealed to be prominent Saudi Arabian businessman Hassan Jameel of Abdul Latif Jameel Domestic, which owns the rights to sell Toyota cars in the gulf state.He’s a private businessman, who happens to be from Saudi Arabia, a nation where women can’t drive, schoolgirls have burned to death for not wearing correct Islamic dress; female maids and domestic workers are routinely raped, beaten and abused; and women are stoned to death for adultery.We must never let our outrage at the violations and indignities endured by Saudi women and girls abate.As a British-born woman of Middle Eastern descent, I find this attitude is both tiresome and disempowering.
To describe all Saudi men as abusive is not just unfair; it also sets back the women’s rights cause in the nation.
Like it or not, the women’s rights movement in Saudi Arabia is dependent on men for its success.
Men like Prince Alwaleed bin Talal have championed the women’s driving movement, and will be instrumental in its eventual success.
