They had said just a few months ago that they would allow Saudi women to participate in the games in London this year. They have chosen not to. They should not be allowed to participate until they are ready to allow women. Even Iran allowed women to participate in the 2008 games in Beijing. The Hermit Kingdom of North Korea, one of the most isolated countries in the world allowed women to participate. Their women won gold in weightlifting and gymnastics.
    We'll see what happens..

    I was wrong the four men in the Qatif gang rape case were sentenced up to 10 years in prison. But the victim was also sentenced to prison and lashes.

    I suggest you go to the following to research the atrocities commited against women by the legal systems of Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries. I was mistaken the men involved were sentenced to

    Further.. Human Rights Watch is lousy at following up on any story. Often as NOT some foreign national ... guest worker yells they are persecuted for being "Christians" when in fact, they were bootleggers.
    100 Lashes is not a beating? 200 lashes is not a beating? It's just a public shaming? It's disgusting that you are attempting to downplay these actions. This is not how a civilized Country should treat their citizens. It's barbaric, cruel and inhuman and anyone with a basic respect for common decency and humanity should be able to see this.

    The irony of it all is despite all the bad remarks about Saudi Arabia U.S. has a major base in Saudi to defend the country. Oil is paramount here and human rights can take a back seat.

    The protocol is how it severely limits range of motion....

    Would you say that 150 years ago, 300 years ago our Christian ancestors were cruel and barbaric?

    you do realize that this goes on both ways? that men can't date any women either? being seen in public with a stranger is a punishable offense for both of them...

    Also sharon just because because you've never worn one doesn't mean everybody else didn't, in fact every time I saw a western woman in Saudi, at malls for instance, they would be wearing a black Abaya (no headscarves though), non Saudi women get away with it but some times the morality police would be a hassle (to foreign Arab women not sure if they bothered white ppl)..

    Change that you YOUR Christian ancestors were cruel and barbaric and it's accurate, and if such as many Christian religious leaders could gain enough power they would be cruel and barbaric again.

    It certainly is, but the Arab Supremacist with which you are engaged is not interested in decency or humanity -- only the defense of anything Arab.

    Well. women couldn't divorce their husbands or have custody of their children... or buy and sell property without permission from their husbands..

    Slaves could be beaten or separated from their families or have their achilles tendon slashed.
