Saudi Arabia, a place where one can still visit the seventh century and not be in a museum.
An image of a conference in Saudi Arabia on the topic of “women in society” – with not a single female present – has gone viral.
The picture features row upon row of men in traditional headscarves and white thobes. A single Westerner in a flannel shirt is the only person breaking up an otherwise uniform sea of what appear to be Arab men.
The conference was reportedly held at the University of Qassim and was apparently attended by representatives of 15 countries.
