Saudi woman who work

Posted: January 22, 2016 in Still Saudi Arabia


The truth is many Saudi woman have rapidly overtaken men academically and professionally within the Kingdom but they continue to face societal prejudice and barriers which curtail their potential success

One such obstacle is Saudi men refusing to marry successful Saudi woman if the work in non-traditional fields which they deem as inappropriate or unacceptable. This often means that professional woman working in say a hospital who work alongside men and have male patients would exclude themselves from a large number of potential suitors. In essence men will refuse to marry a woman if she comes in to contact with other men….

Protecting your wife from unwanted attention or the height of male insecurity and patriarchal dominantion?
