Saudi Olympic Athletes Test Kingdom's Dedication To Gender Apartheid

Saudi Olympic Athletes Test Kingdom's Dedication To Gender Apartheid | Geography Education | Scoop.it

"Far from revered, the Kingdom’s first female athletes are ignored or insulted at home, writes Qanta Ahmed."

 

KH: It took international pressure, but for the first time, all participating nations have sent female athletes to the Olympics. Saudi royalty allowed female participation, which has not been entierly well recieved in the Kingdom. Should we be glad that the women are there at all? Or is this simply for show, a hollow gesture?
