Saudi is very much a mans world??? Saudi Arabia is very much an islamic ruled state, so blame islam if you don't like the laws of the land. But it is the BBC, so let's blame all men and put a fat unattrative white guy in the video about a middle eastern dictatorship, hinting that its partly also their fault and call it a day👌
Kaergaard (9 days ago)
Oh those darn white males using their white male privilege to suppressing women once again!! Oh wait.. Saudi Arabia? They are from the middle east, right? Never mind then - islam is the religion of peace❤ #FeminismRocks #YouGoGirl #ImWithHer #TellMeWhatToVoteBeyoncé

Ohh Girl,please stop. Saudi Arabia is a Muslim country and law is based on religion. And if you don't know anything about someone's religion,you better just don't talk.
The whole world is mans world because we conquered the world.

Oh! Saudi Arabia victims have more rights than criminals. Horrible! Wow! In western countries serial killers of young women sit s climate controlled room watch Oprah and eat pizza. Saudi Arabia is horrible for criminals. Charles Mason died comfortably in old age in a comfortable room after killing six people. Now piss off and don’t force your garbage on other people. There are no gangs in Saudi Arabia.

Now kiss off you lesbian Saudi Arabia is a mans world. You want your garbage human rights for criminals who kill small children, then relax in climate controlled jails watching tv and eating pizza. F———- off . InnSsudi Arabia criminals have no rights.

Its very saddening that even in 21st century women are so much oppressed. These laws should immediately be dismantled.

+Aleena Malik Don't you think they're oppressed? Don't you consider one who has been denied basic human rights such as driving, wearing dresses of their choice in public places, as oppressed? Don't you think that its misogynistic, or rather I should call it de jure patriarchy, to punish rape victim with lashes for out in public without any so called male guardian.

القصة إنه في زوج ثري من السعودية اشترى سيارة لزوجته وبنته , بعد شهر وجد نفسه مغرق بالديون وعلى حافة بيع ورهن بيته من الافلاس لأن زوجته وبنته تتسوق كل يوم في الاسواق وتذهب للاعراس والمناسبات بالسيارة وهذا مخالف للشريعة الاسلامية حيث الرجال قوامون على النساء والزوجة في الاسلام يجب أن تستأذن الزوج قبل الخروج من البيت حتى لايطمع الذين في قلوبهم مرض. وياريت اللغة العربية النيرة السمحة تكون اللغة الاساسية الأولى للسعوديات. حتى لايكون هناك غزو ثقافي للغتنا العربية الجميلة.

AJ (13 days ago)
@Dragostea, It's part of the patriarchal society where men are seen as the decision-making power in the family and women as the managerial power. Progression in terms of women's rights and their roles are progressing rapidly, and cultural reforms are taking place right now. This year they have appointed a female deputy minister and they have started hiring female soldiers. Hopefully in the next few years, the male guardianship system will be non-existent.
Dragostea Din Tei (13 days ago)
+AJ btw why can't women just be responsible for themselves? Living in Russia I see that women cope better with most of the domestic problems comparing to men.
Dragostea Din Tei (13 days ago)
+AJ are you referring to all the Muslim videos on Youtube or what? Get a life man 😂

Her mom can be the guardian. There were number of cases where male guardians have abused their power and therefore the guardianship was transferred to the mother.

I seriously don’t know what good does a woman feel in going out in bikinis and showing her body to all men. A women is precious and should be covered and preserved. If u read more about the teachings of the Quran u will understand the wisdom behind everything what is said by the Almighty!
Dragostea Din Tei (13 days ago)
In one of the hadiths is written that 70 or 70k angels curse a woman if she refuses to have sex with her husband. And Islam is full of such misogynist states. It's obvious a man made religion.
Shaima Niyaz (3 months ago)
I was born and raised in KSA for about 17 years. I feel it’s a safe place for women. We can practice Islam here safely unlike other countries who puts ban on religious practices and call themselves a secular country. KSA follows rules based on the teachings of Islam and in Islam women have many rights. It’s just that the outsiders interpret it wrong and instead of reading the Quran, just blindly listen to the media and get a very very wrong idea about Islam.

Instead of showing that others are backwards and dont have rights, talk about countries that are still occupied by western countries and how racist people are to muslim people in the western countries and that muslims woman do not have the right to wear a hijab and practice there religion in frensh schools. I do not deny that there are problems with the law in Saudi but focus on your mistakes before you give this bad image about others. As you have the right to wear a bikini, you have a right to wear modestly, so in saudi women are forbidden to wear bikini and in western countries you are forbidding muslim woman to wear their hijabs, then do not try to show yourselves as developed and liberal because you are not.

Fuck all these Middle Eastern counties. They should be abolished. Feminazis should fight for women’s rights there, not in the west where everyone has the same rights. But no, moronic politicians and SJWs rather focus on things that don’t matter like people getting offended (boooohoooo) rather than actually caring about people’s rights. The fact that these countries are allowed to exist is a disgrace.

educate your self before making a video. Instead of making such a video, it would be great if you just share the joy of us ladies of saudi arabia about driving. you can open a bank account without a permission from anyone and work without a permission. As for the travel permission, it is to be removed soon. For the dress code, this is a part of our culture that we like to keep alive even without covering the hair. I mean UAE locals still wear the same as saudi but no one point that out!!! the UAE society is exactly like the saudi society in the culture and traditions. if you want to wear a bikini, like life is dependent on it, we do have lots of beaches that you can wear whatever you like there ( A lot in Jeddah), and you do not have to be rich to go there, you can pay an entry fee. i know we have a long way to go but we are proud of who we are and we are proud of the progress that happened. we are taking our time and no need to rush. The way you portrayed our country is not true. I have studied in the United Kingdom and traveled the world and most people here are like this. what your talking about is a minority of people who do not let their daughters do what they want. About 51% of the population is under the age of 25!!!! the young generation is highly educated and is moving foreword. our crown prince , MBS, is 32 and is doing so much for our generation. It would be nice to support and share the happiness and joy of people.

Women can't go out with male friends.. Also mean men can't go out with female friends.. The guardianship system shouldn't be simply criticised.. You need data to show women are not allowed to go out or open bank accounts by their guardian.. Permission of 5 year old brother to get divorce.. Sounds like a blatant lie.. If true it is against Islamic law.. Women don't have to get permission from anyone to get divorce according to sharia

I've lived in Saudi for 9 years and when women wanted to go out they'd just call their driver and go shopping with their friends. In almost all cases, this "guardianship" rule rarely applies and even if it does, it seems to be ignored.

That was not my point. In fact the video you shared just proved my point. The video I shared had no Muslim refugees and its does not matter if a Muslim does this or a Non-Muslim. If you read my other comments, I am against this act altogether AND the source of the problem i.e women marketing themselves as an object.

Najam Ul Abideen Tariq (3 months ago)
1- Cant say much. But why are human rights campaigners against this? I even as a male am against keeping money in banks altogether. 2- Its not only about permission. A male guardian would have to travel with you. This is for your own safety stupid. 3- That's part of shariah law. But by the looks of it, I don't think you really believe in that. And about permission for divorce, they have courts who decide in the end. 4- For privacy. And to protect you from other males. But no, you want to flirt around and when approached by any male, whine about sexual harassment. 5- And then it end with a bikini....... This is dumb, you want to market your assets and then cry about rape and being treated as a sexual object. Who are you?
