Husband treat badly Arab wife severely restricted
The Feminist (history as gender struggle) view of women in the Arab world, is that as in other areas of the world, have throughout history experienced discrimination and have been subject to restrictions of their freedoms and rights. Some of these practices are based on religious beliefs, but many of the limitations are cultural and emanate from tradition as well as religion. These main constraints that create an obstacle towards women’s rights and liberties are reflected in laws dealing with criminal justice, economy, education and healthcare.
Saudi Arabia’s human rights record, especially with regards to protecting women, has often been called into question.
Although women’s rights have been incrementally extended in recent years – they were allowed to vote in municipal elections for the first time last year – their actions are still severely restricted.
In a country where a woman cannot even open a bank account without her husband’s permission, here are several other things they are still unable to do:
1. Drive a car
2. Wear clothes or make-up that “show off their beauty”
3. Interact with men
4. Go for a swim
5. Compete freely in sports
6. Try on clothes when shopping
