6197...Feminist Conference In Saudi Arabia

You will note in the photo I grabbed from The Daily Mail that there is not a woman in sight.  And why should there be; this is Saudi Arabia where women are lucky if they are second class citizens.

The conference was apparently held last year at the University of Qassim [Go Ducks!] last year.  The topic was "Women In Society" and drew men from 15 countries.

No girls allowed: A 'Women in Society' conference in Saudi Arabia which judging by this picture had an all-male attendance

On the plus side for Saudi women they are now, as of April 2013, allowed to ride bicycles.
