Human Right Watch has issued a detailed report of how Saudi Arabia keeps women in a state of “childhood,” dependent upon males for things ranging from medical care to driving. The report, “Perpetual Minors: Human Rights Abuses Stemming from Male Guardianship and Sex Segregation in Saudi Arabia,” is based on more than 100 interviews with Saudi women.
Frankly, 100 women is not a large pool and I am surprised that they did not try to extend the pool of interviews. However, as noted previously on this blog here and here, the treatment of women in the country shocks the conscience.
