It is not safe to be a women

Warning! This video contains shocking images!

The world is not a safe place to be a woman. Not if you live in a place where a woman has no value. A country where the gods say she is less than a man. A culture where women are expendable are valueless.
In Islam a woman is inferior to men. In Saudi Arabia she is owned by men. Women and girls can be sold like cows in may Muslim countries.  In such a world the killing of women is a matter of no importance.

Tell me, why are the media not full with these crimes?
Why do we help those in need and those suffering from disasters?
But why does nobody think of helping the women under oppression by Islam?

No sports for virgins

Saudi ladies suffer a great deal. They suffer from depression, diabetes, obesity and osteoporosis. The reasons women suffer from ostheoporosis in such a sunny climate is because they hardly go out. If they do they are covered under abayaat, hijaab and niqaab.

There are gyms for ladies in the larger cities. They are mostly in umarked buildings for privacy. it is also dangerous to publicize because the religious police like to close ladies gyms because of their immoral character.
The gyms for men are of course out in the open and very nice.

State girls schools forbid any kind of physical activity.

By conservative people sport for women is seen as immodest. Even immoral.

Why are sports forbidden to women?

According to the grand mufti : ”Women should be housewives, there is no need for them to engage in sports.”

Other clerics argue that sports are absolutely off limits only for virgins, who could become unmarriageable if they were to damage their hymens through athletic activity.

And there we have the crux of the matter.
A woman has only value if she is a virgin.
After losing her virginity she is only good to stay in the house, provide sex and babies for the hsuband. That is her task in life. Nothing else.

And the backward thinking saudies still believe not only that all virgin women have hymens, but also that they all bleed on first sexual intercourse. And that a woman can damage her virginity with sports or even moving around too much.

You even see young women walk very slowly in a weird rolling way. they do so because they believe that walking with a normal stride endangers their virginity: their only asset for which they are valued.
and no sports which would make them strong and healthy. these things are of no importance the only thing which counts is the hymen. A woman has to cover and veil because she is a walking hymen.
The only value of a woman is an undamaged hymen.
When that is damaged she has no value: she is used goods.

No jobs for women

Posted in Islam,politics,religion,Saudi Arabia,women by Save the Women! on November 18, 2010

My former post was about good news from Saudi Arabia.

Now the bad news

The upshot of Panda supermarkets hiring saudi women to work as cashiers has been answered by an official fatwa stating that women are not allowed to work as cashiers. Because they will interact with men.

This fatwa apparently has been approved by the king, so that is an end to his claims to help women become human beings.

For those who don’t know, all sales assistants are male. even in lingerie shops. Saudi women have to buy and discuss their underwear with men, but they are not allowed to sell groceries behind a till. Also the only way a saudi lady can get anywhere is being driven around in her own car by a foreign male driver. Because only humans with dicks are allowed to drive in the kingdom of insanity.
There are two easily understood reasons for this. The sales assistants are foreign men so do not really count as men because no saudi lady would ever start a sexual fling with a foreign man. Also the drivers are foreign so their dicks count to allow them to drive, but not when interacting with a saudi lady.

the other reason is that if saudi women were to make some money on their own that would be the first step to make them independent. The first goal of the saudies is to keep women in their position of slavery.

Owning your own money clashes with that.

So no jobs for women.

Goody Goody Goody

Stuff from Saudi Arabia!

For everybody who keeps telling me to write something positive for a change, here are three goody news items!

14 year old girl rescued from 70 year old pedophile!


There was this little girl in KSA, only 14 years old. She was sold into  sexual slavery marriage to an old man. Her father decided to sell her so he could steal use her mahr. Mahr is the money a new husband pays for having sex with the new wife.  The girl did not get mahr, but the father got money for providing the old pedophile with his 14 year old daughter so he could buy a new car.
The price a 14-year old girl goes for these days is 17,000 Riyals and 100 head of sheep.
Of course the girl did not want to marry a 70 year old pedophile, but in the Kingdom of miracles you can get married without your consent and without even your presence.
The grandparents who have brought the girl up, the father never having cared for her, have succesfully rescued her. For the time being. At the moment she is placed under ownership of her grandfather who has her best interests at heart. Unlike her father who seems to have more interest in a good sale of his property.
As long as the official authorities do not send her back to the 70 year old pedophile the girl is safe. And considering his advanced age I can only  hope the old creep will snuff it within the year.

”We called Noura’s father in order to look into the facts of the case, and he confirmed the union but said that it was with the blessing of his daughter,” Bin Labda said.
After “confirming the truth of the complaint”, Bin Labda said that Noura was placed in the care of her grandfather, while her father was required to sign a pledge that she would remain there and that he would “refrain from any form of violence or force to make her go to her husband until official authorities in the town had ruled on the issue”.
Bin Labda added that the regional governor of Sabya had been informed.

I think it was in her advantage that the grandfather complained. A grandfather is a man. In cases where only the mother complained of the sale of her daughter the outcome is usually bleak.

What happens to all the girls who have nobody to save them from sexual slavery to old men? What happens to these girls when the old men finally die?

Disobedient woman rescued from prison sentence

Samar Badawi is a 29 year old divorced mother who has been sitting in a Saudi jail without a trial and without being charged for the last seven months. She has been accused of “filial ingratitude”.
In Saudi speak that means that when her father abused her, when he refused to allow her to marry, when his guardianship was being used to prevent her from seeking a safe and fulfilling life of her own, she – according to the judge who sent her to jail – was disobedient in seeking a court order to remove him as guardian.

Women can go to court to try and move their ownership to a better guardian, but you see the result: prison for the ”crime” of disobedience.

However, a sustained media campaign was started. A face book page was created, and thousands of twitters flew through cyberspace. This media attention finally led to her release from prison.
Ownership of her person has been transferred to her uncle.

What happens to the women who do not get this support and media attention?

Jeddah Pink Ribbon gets into the Guinnes Book of Records!

Here in Jeddah an estimated 6000 women gathered to break the German Guinness book of records number of women forming a pink ribbon.
There has been a lot of media and internet attention to promote awareness of breast cancer. Women here are not aware of breastcancer and even if the suspicion would come up they would hide it. I think many women are afraid to loose the little value they have once it is discovered they have the flaw of breast cancer or worse, have had a mastectomy. I have observed once or twice that indeed they have lost their value.

But, imagine what an achievement! In saudi no less! read susie of arabia’s excellent article for all the details. Imagine the hurdles saudi women had to overcome for this event! Hurdles unique to saudi and which women outside of the kingdom have no idea of!

Large congregations of people are discouraged. Men and women are not allowed to ”mingle” (that includes occupying the same public space), Organisations outside of  government, and without government consent are forbidden. The stadium was for men only. For this event the stadium was forbidden to men! Women are hidden beneath layers of black cloth and ”protected”, only with the express allowance of their owners would they be allowed to even participate. There is no public transport and women are not allowed to drive. So every single woman had to be driven there by a male driver who was not allowed to mingle with any other woman. The religious authorites objected. Law enforcement  objected. City government objected.
While this event could never have taken place without major massive Royal support,.

It is inspiring to see what women can accomplish in saudi if only they are given the chance to!!!!!
