Women Tracking System is Slavery, Saudi Writer Says

Badriya al-Bisher on the women tracking system:

My advice to the Passport Directorate is to patent this invention because I am sure some companies will steal it and develop it into a more sophisticated technology that allows a husband to know every step his wife takes outside the house!

Do these procedures not remind you of the ones used to track down criminals who are under probation?

To put an adult woman under the constant control of her husband is proof that the wife is a slave. If the husband is good, she will live in peace.

If he is bad, she will face the destiny of a slave – she might be freed from slavery or live in torture. This explains why the woman stood next to the station helpless while officers could not do anything for her.
