Is the Saudi Government Monitoring Women?

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Saudi Arabia, Women & Gender

Is the Saudi government monitoring women? Blogger Ahmed Al Omran tells us how [1] it is done. He adds:

The problem is not that there is now an electronic system that sends an SMS when women travel. Some people might actually want this service. The problem is that the government is enforcing rules of male guardianships even on the rest of us who don’t believe in such rules. One day, MOI could choose to provide a checkbox in their system that says: “My female relatives don’t need my permission to travel.” That day, unfortunately, has not come yet.
