Saudi Arabia is US ally in "war on terror". It is also branded as being friendly towards Western countries.

Well, the following story is hardy a surprise:
Unchaperoned woman to get 300 lashes (http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/breaking-news/unchaperoned-woman-to-get-300-lashes/story-fn3dxity-1225836750143)


A SAUDI woman's to get 300 lashings and 18 months' prison for filing complaints against court officials and being in court without a male guardian.

.......................

On January 25, she was convicted after a month-long trial before two judges, one of whom was a plaintiff in the case and the original target of Salim's harassment allegations, according to HRW.

I read that in 12th century Sharia law was a significant step forwards in relation to human rights and especially women's right. Most likely it's true.
However, the rest of the world now lives in 21st century.

Naturally, western feminists ignore such horrific abuse of women. They are too busy grousing against Western men, although women can have any job they want, including PM.
