...who needs feudal 14th century theocracies?
-- Riyadh -- Saudi Arabia is planning to bring in a new law to allow women lawyers to argue cases in court for the first time.Which begs the question... what have female Saudi lawyers been doing up 'til now... their male colleague's laundry?
That's actually a pretty good possibility...
Under a system of male guardianship, Saudi Arabian women are required to be kept separate from men they are not related to.Hmmm... aren't the media always touting Saudi Arabia as "the progressive one?"
All are veiled to a greater or lesser degree in public, they are not allowed to drive, and women under 45 must receive permission from a male when they travel.
Opportunities for education and employment are also dependent on male guardianship.
