Saudi Woman Wearing Hijab

Saudi Woman Wearing Hijab
All Saudi Arabia women are required to have a male guard despite of their age as male guardianship is considered to be a right of women. The guardian can either be a father, brother or a husband. The guardian has responsibilities and rights over the woman in many aspect of community life. Saudi Arabia women aren’t allowed to drive and it is the only country in the world that forbids female from driving. Saudi Arabian believes that allowing women to drive could possible cause western-style ingenuousness and deterioration of traditional principles and morals. Saudi Arabian women are somehow lucky as employment isn’t prohibited but they aren’t permitted to work in institutions or workplaces where there is mixed gender. Saudi Arabia women are also prohibited from wearing clothes that expose their bodies. In Saudi Arabia, all of the body should be covered except eyes and hands. All Saudis women are expected to wear a hijab (a head covering garment), an abaya (a full black cloak) and a niqab (a face-veil). Today, abayas are available in various colors and pattern to suit everyone’s taste.  Customarily, Saudi Arabia women are supposed to wear clothing that is opaque, thick and loose.
