How Women Contribute to Make Saudi Arabia a Better Society

Date: May 13, 2003
QUOTE: In recent years, as Saudi Arabia develops into a modern nation, there has been considerable controversy about the roles women can and should play in public and private life.

ABSTRACT: The rights and privileges of women have long been debated in Saudi Arabia. Dr. Al-Abdul Kader, author of a book on the status of women in Saudi Arabia, explains that many Saudis misinterpret Islam when they use the religion as a means for curtailing women's rights. He argues that Muslim women have been wrongly shunned from public life, for reasons that have nothing to do with Islam. --- Sara Holliday
