Arab satellite TV is full of female singers who look much like this one. Exaggerated makeup, bleached and teased hair, tight clothing. It’s too bad this is one of the “in really poor taste” influences that the Middle East has picked up from the West. By the way, none of these singers are Saudi women. They are all from other countries in the region, like Syria, Egypt, or Lebanon. Saudi women are not allowed to appear in public looking like this. Just recently Saudi religious clerics recommended that Saudi women should not appear on TV or in print either – EVER! To learn more about how Saudi Arabia severely limits women from taking a more active role in society and even in their own lives, please read a recent post I wrote on my other blog, Susie’s Big Adventure.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
