Saudi Woman's Skirt Leads to Arrest for Violating Dress Code

Saudi Woman's Skirt Leads to Arrest for Violating Dress Code

Others have argued that Saudi Arabia needs to accept foreigners who won't follow its strict dress code if the country wants to attract tourists.

US First Lady Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump, daughter of the president, did not cover their hair when they visited Saudi Arabia in May. That tweet was shared nearly 2,000 times. "You turned your eyes away from all the catastrophes in the world and the only thing that outraged you is a woman not wearing an abaya?".

After the post went viral, the Washington Post reported that Riyadh police arrested the woman for wearing "suggestive clothing," according to Saudi state TV station Al Ekhbariya.

The case is now in the hands of the public prosecutor who will decide whether to charge her with a crime. Riyadh cut ties with Tehran afterwards, responding to attacks by angry protesters on its embassy in the Iranian capital. In the original video, the your woman was walking in a village in the Najd region. "She must go to jail with whoever filmed her. We have our traditions and customs and, most importantly, our religion". "She wants to create chaos for Muslim women".

Despite much of the social media backlash against Khulood and the video, however, many have rallied around her using the former's hashtag, #مطلوب_محاكمه_مودل_خلود. The country's religious police said that her attire is "offensive" and promised to investigate the matter.

- Faisal Saeed AlMutar (@faisalalmutar) July 18, 2017This is how Saudi Arabia, which sits on the UN Women's Rights Commission, "empowers" women.

Saudi women are not allowed to drive their own cars. Last month, King Salman announced that the public prosecution powers would be moved from under the interior minister's purview to that of the royal court, directly under the monarch. Despite these moves by Saudi Arabia to modernization, strict gender segregation rules and other restrictions on women remain same. Bin Salman has been adamant about making these changes as part of his strategy for the future, Vision 2030.
