Saudi Arabia won't let women drive: Is Saudia Arabia a modern, progressive country?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • In terms of social beliefs, Saudi Arabia is far from modern and progressive.

    Although much of Saudi Arabia appears to be technologically advanced, their beliefs and customs have not changed in hundreds of years unlike most other places. Homosexuals are still executed in Saudi Arabia, saying anything against Islam is punished by death, movie theaters are banned, men and women are not allowed to socialize unless they are related or married and so on. Women also can't be in public unaccompanied by a male, can't choose who to marry and are usually denied education. So no, Saudi Arabia is not progressive.
