This is a great represenaton for showing the unfortunate truth of the state women in the world today.

Shelby Porter's curator insight, November 4, 2013 11:15 AM

Why are women so unequal to men? Why are women in the Middle East seeing such bad treatment and unequality? How can we fix these problems?

Saudi women allowed into Olympics

Saudi women allowed into Olympics | IB&A Level Geography | Scoop.it

"Saudi Arabia is to allow its women athletes to compete in the Olympics for the first time ever, a statement by the country's London embassy says."  In what is viewed as sensitive 'baby steps' towards inclusion for women in activities most in the West take for granted, females will be competing for the Saudi Olympic team in London, something that has been forbidden until very recently.  Allowing their participation also alleviates pressure from the entire team being disqualified due to gender discrimination.  (Apparently they can ride horses - will driving automobiles be far behind?)

I believe its amazing to see women from Saudi Arabia to compete in the Olympics. It gives them a chance to take a huge role in their society and may increase their chances of getting more rights in the future.

i think it is great that Saudi Arabia is now letting women compete in the Olympics, it is a small step, but hopefully in the future it will be a gateway to much more freedom for the women.

I think it is amazing that Saudi Arabia allowed women to compete in the Olympics. It may just be a small step, but it may open a huge range of opportunities for the Saudi Arabia women. Hopefully, as time progresses, they will be able to have as much freedom as women here, in the United States, do.

I'm not quite sure i understand why the woman aren't allowed time saving technalogy if it is they who till the fields. Why is that?

I think the answer lies in the patriarchal nature of many societies in the developing world. Women provide the labour, but are not in a position to make decisions about management of the land. This situation is exacerbated by gender inequities regarding access to education.
