A girl wearing a miniskirt, with her belly exposed and her uncovered hair loose in the wind, had never been seen in Saudi Arabia. But thanks to the power of social networks, the image of a model named “Khulood” appeared on Snapchat and quickly went viral.
Her image, typical for us, could become a revolutionary icon to Saudi women. Just like the women drivers were. The obscurantism of the Saudi rulers hides all manner of male perversions (provided they are not practiced by Shiites) but not the slightest freedom to women. Saudi women can do nothing if not accompanied by their “guardian;” they cannot even search the internet. And so, Khulood, whose full identity remains unknown, came out of prison and stated she had not posted the video of herself, which she has seen only in the company of her “guardian.”
True or false, that reveals all the hypocrisy of the Saudi kingdom.
