The new, modern Saudi Arabia. Seventh century misogynistic ideology meets 21st century technology. In addition to this app, Sharia law allows a man to divorce his wife by saying “I divorce you” three times…do you have to text three times? But this is what the feminists of the West say is the great religion of Islam — the most misogynistic faith in the world. Few people in the West realize the real situation of women in Saudi Arabia.

The app sends a notification when a woman presents her passport at border control. Border police will deny the woman travel if her guardian says so….
