For Women Only

DSCF7244 1
This is a sign outside a business that only caters to women. Men are strictly forbidden from entering. It is a combination beauty parlor/internet cafe and it’s located in a local mall here in Jeddah. Many business establishments are for men-only or women-only because of the segregation of the sexes required in this strict Islamic country.

    HI
    GREAT BLOG.
    in SAUDI Arabia women privacy is a big thing and it ia always protected ,and there a lot of places for there where women can enjoy them selves without worying about men and what they would think about them. Actually most of th places have a bigger section for women. By the way Susie did you ever attended a Saudi wedding? what you think?

    That’s interesting. I am wondering what it means that there is a Filipina Internet operator.

    Maybe there’s some peace to be found here?

    I’m glad there are places for women only. Although it is unfortunte to have to be that way.

    It is nice to know there are some places exclusively for ladies in such a male dominated country. I presume they would be able to remove face and head coverings in such a place and just be natural normal and relaxed.
