In the “DUH” category today, I found this interesting article that highlights the (lack of) women’s rights inherent in Arab/muslim society.

Saudi women had more rights at the time of the Romans than today

Riyadh (AsiaNews) – Arab women had more rights at the time of the Romans than they have today. At that time, in fact, their capacity to conduct their own economic affairs was recognised, which is not true in Saudi Arabia today. This is maintained by a female Saudi scholar, Hatoon al-Fassi, in a book entitled “Women In Pre-Islamic Arabia”, published by British Archaeological Reports.
