Can You See What’s Wrong With This Saudi Arabia Women’s Rights Conference? LOOK CLOSELY
Saudi Arabia’s University of Qassim played host to one of the biggest women’s rights conferences in the Arab world.
The institution managed to hold the event without the advice or attendance of a single woman.
Intelligently themed around the topic of “Women in Society,” the conference was supposed to set a benchmark for tolerance and progress in the region. However, as is expected from Saudi Arabia — a country firmly ruled by its own interpretation of the Sharia Law — there were no women in attendance for a conference meant to discuss their rights.
