Also in defense of Saudi Arabia (Because if you have to visit a Muslim nation, Saudi Arabia is probably the safest next to the UAE), they are getting better. King Abdullah has stated that women will be allowed to hold public office by 2015.
that just boils my blood. Bunch of assholes!banning women from driving and requiring them to have permission from a male guardian before travelling or receiving medical care.
"you can't be serious!!" - yes actually I am.
IKEA obviously thought it would be in their best interest to Pshop out the women in that region.
Well would it have been better if they hadn't gone over the top to attempt to prevent offending Saudi Arabia, and gotten crazy people running around burning things?
Certain individuals have been getting offended dangerously easy lately. http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...Temples-Burned
They're just playing it safe.
Glad to see there are still smart business people who dont put personal beliefs above the dollar.
Rather ironic, considering where it happened...
I think we all know exactly what the problem is here. Some will chose to pretend that this isn't a symptom of a very large problem though.
To the best of my knowledge, Saudi Arabia hasn't signed any international agreement that binds them to treat women as equals.
Not saying I agree with it. I'm saying they're a sovereign nation and you don't get to just tell them what they should do.
