Electronic Tracking? Cue The Audio Visual Demonstration – Saudi Women Now Being Monitored By Electronic Tracking System…

Brilliant !!  ya’ know, m’cause it ain’t just fer kiddies no more  :(    ( fyi, I would kinda like to see what happens to the dude who would try to pull one of these tracking manuevers on Waltzing Matilda..…)  

(AFP) – Denied the right to travel without consent from their male guardians and banned from driving, women in Saudi Arabia are now monitored by an electronic system that tracks any cross-border movements.

Since last week, Saudi women’s male guardians began receiving text messages on their phones informing them when women under their custody leave the country, even if they are travelling together.

Manal al-Sherif, who became the symbol of a campaign launched last year urging Saudi women to defy a driving ban, began spreading the information on Twitter, after she was alerted by a couple.

The husband, who was travelling with his wife, received a text message from the immigration authorities informing him that his wife had left the international airport in Riyadh.

“The authorities are using technology to monitor women,” said columnist Badriya al-Bishr, who criticised the “state of slavery under which women are held” in the ultra-conservative kingdom.

Women are not allowed to leave the kingdom without permission from their male guardian, who must give his consent by signing what is known as the “yellow sheet” at the airport or border.   (read more)

But Paul Ryan is part of a war on women right?  

You’ve come a long way baby……

  1. How were they able to track them? Where are the tracking devices? Are Saudi women now being microchipped, like pets?

    God have mercy on us, the way the wrld is heading.

    But if the woman doesn’t have the “yellow sheet” signed by her husband, how does she get through the airport to begin with? Something is fishy about this story.

    I am guessing that the husband could register with the authorities that his e-mail address or mobile phone number be linked to his wife’s passport number or name. When the woman’s passport is scanned at the airport, it activates a messaging system and he gets a text message that his wife is at the airport.

    In America, we use such tracking systems (GPS enabled), but they are used almost exclusively on men in this country

      Indeed,among the reasons we hate Saudi Arabia so much is they dont treat their men as bad as we do (we want them to treat their women far better than they treat their men as we do here).
      We bend over backwards to help women (and dont care a lick about the plight of men) whereas they dont care about the plight of women (and are totally concerned with men).
      As a man, I am very concerned about the plight of women in Saudi Arabia, but I know men are mistreated as a group right here (and thosde who like to lock men in cages want to distract your attention from how bad men are being treated by focusing on how women are treated in far flung lands).
      The Duke lacrosse scandal used our hatred of men as well as hatred of white people to go after the duke lacrosse boys (they were not despicable merely cuz they were wghite, but also in large measure cuz they were male, as well-these are inextricably linked in that casse and the GZ case).
