    Do you want more, I'll give you more. I could go on posting atrocities against women by courts in countries throughout the middle east all day. And its only going to get worse now that islamist groups are taking over countries whose dictators have been overthrown such as Egypt, Lybia, Tunisia, and soon Syria.
    Why do you want to change Saudi Arabia?

    They have a very low crime rate and a small prison population?

    because their women are second-class citizens, and they discriminate against non-Muslims.

    and their laws are draconian and 12th century.

    but they can't drive, they can't walk around without their bodies covered, etc etc...

    the discrimination against women in Saudi Arabia is well documented.

    Bedouin women have been driving for decades..

    Urban women will get the right to drive as soon as the 100 new Highway Plazas are completed by Prince Salman.

    And, women go out without a male escort all the time.. They shop, visit each other, go to cafes, to the market to the bank and grocery stores, souks etc........

    Re: Saudi Arabia says no to women Olympians

    Does a Saudi woman in Saudi Arabia have the right to date whomever she wishes? And if she chooses to date a man and is seen in public with him is she at risk? What if her father or brother disaproves of the man she is dating?
