New Electronic System Tracks Women for Saudi Husbands

When they’re on the go – You’ll know.

A new electronic tracking system sends Saudi men notifications when their wives leave the country.
Al-Arabiya reported:

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.

    Liberal women, who *claim* to be for women’s rights, should be absolutely against islamization anywhere.

    East Germany would just shoot them, now gps tracks them down for who knows what they do behind closed tents.

    These women are not the only ones being monitored. Perhaps we should take a closer look at what is happening in our country and not what some sand fleas are doing.

    It is about time. They also need electronic shock collars that automatically go off if they try to take off the Hijab without their husband or father present.

    This religion seems to be centered around the subjugation of women in one way or another. Half their laws revolve around rules for the slavery of women. This is the only religion (besides devil worship) that I know of that is so obcessed with sex.

    This is the universal war on women. Obama would support his muslim cohorts in subjugating these women while pandering to the feminists here. The libs have no shame and will stoop to any low to win!

    Shock collars to stop them mating. 60 years and most of the Worlds problems solved along with free oil wells.

    But, but, but…the arabs are our friends so we have to understand their ‘war on women’ isn’t the same as the bad American’s war on women.
