Workers at a store pictured above, including the female staff. Women have started working at grocery stores and department stores which was not acceptable while we lived there.

  1. Great progress made then now that women are allowed to work in stores. I bet it must liberating for these women to be able to earn a living and have some of control.

    • It was so strange to hear that women were working! They are usually teachers and doctors but not at a store! So, yes very liberating!

  6. The world is always changing. It may be painfully slow, but change will always be part of our dynamic society. Embrace it whenever possible.

  7. That cart for the cafeteria trays strikes me as a particularly useful (if a bit lazy) invention! I could pile up so much more food with one of those!

  18. So by the look of the top photo that’s three?? women at the front who are working in the store compared with how many men? And, they are still covered from head to toe. Progress? It’s infinitesimal. But that’s Islam for you I guess.

    • It’s culture not religion. In other middle eastern countries women work and drive but Saudi is way behind.
