Do I have some sort of dylexia or possibly am I hallucinating what I am reading HERE
Saudi Arabia is the most religiously strict country in the Middle East, with total segregation of the sexes, and it practices Wahhabi Islam, a byword for conservatism around the region. But the university will not require women to wear veils or cover their faces, and they will be able to mix freely with men.
They will also be allowed to drive, a taboo in a country where women must literally take a back seat to their male drivers.
OMG NO WAY!! Please do not think I am making a values judgment, I lived in KSA when the Kingdom didn't even have fresh milk! (1975-1980)
