From Saudi Arabia Correspondent Eman Al Nafjan… The first time I came across Waleed Abulkhair’s name was about five years ago, when I was following Samar Badawi’s case. Badawi was being abused by her father, and despite medical and psychological reports from Saudi hospitals and shelters proving this, a court ruled in her father’s favor […]

From Saudi Arabia Corespondent Eman AL Nafjan… In a country where you get an eight years prison term for torturing your daughter to death while another gets a ten years sentence for dancing naked in the street, it’s safe to say we are conformists. That’s why there is no experience like that of being on an international flight outbound […]

From Saudi Arabia Corespondent Eman Al Nafjan… Late April, Abullah Al Alami and Samar Fatany announced that they would be starting a local White Ribbon campaign. Since then, bringing them down has become the personal mission of many ultra-conservative sheikhs. The White Ribbon campaign originally was started in Canada as a reaction to a massacre committed by Marc Lepine (born Gamil […]

From Saudi Arabian Corespondent Eman Al Naafjan… This past decade unemployment in Saudi has kept increasing despite the several plans and projects made by the education ministry, civil services and the ministry of labor. Numbers vary from one source to another with government research usually being the smaller of the bunch. But even the government’s numbers are […]

From Saudi Arabia Corespondent Eman Al Nafjan… The first school I went to in Riyadh was, of course, an all-girls school. I was very happy to see it had a swimming pool. It was drained and fenced up and, because it was autumn, I thought nothing more of it. But as the weather got warmer, […]

From Saudi Corespondent Eman Al Nafjan… I normally write about Saudi but the situation is getting dire in an area that’s increasingly becoming a blind spot for the rest of the world. In Syria the death toll is 8,000 and growing and the refugee count has reached 34000. Yet instead of at least covering what’s […]

You Can’t Keep Good Women Down

From Saudi Arabia Corespondent Eman Al Najan… Prison, lashings and Interior Ministry phone threats, fines and pledges drove the women driving movement underground again.  This time around though, unlike in 1990, it was only for a few months before Saudi rights activists geared up again to call for this basic right of no gender discriminations […]

From Saudi Arabia Corespondent Eman Al Nafjan… Historically Arabs are notorious for their autocratic business model, however in today’s highly competitive world companies fall over each in trying to gain consumer loyalty through quality products and better customer services. Unfortunately not all Saudi companies have caught on to this approach. In the majority of Saudi […]

From Saudi Arabia Corespondent Eman Al Nafjan… In Saudi Arabia my gender decides whether or not I can enter certain ministries, what I can major in college and if I can name my own child. My gender mandates that I cannot drive my own car. No matter what age I am or how well I […]

RELATIVELY Speaking

  • CANADA: AN EXPAT HEAVEN With our ever shrinking global village, migratory work patterns are becoming more and more a part of people’s lives. Work in one country, summer in another, then try yet another. Thinking about it? Canada, Australia and Thailand are the best places to do
  • NO KIDDING, CONDOLEEZA! In a video at the recently opened George W. Bush Library, Condoleeza Rice confirms Bush was both aware and condoned torture. Guess there’s no need to lie your asses off anymore, is there Dipshit?
  • NO MATTER WHAT, IT'S WORTH IT With its Tex-Mex menu, Taco Bell is one of the most popular fat-food chains in America. No matter what happens after you eat it..
  • TURKISH AUTISTIC ATHIESTS “Autistic children do not know believing in God because they do not have a section of faith in their brains,” claims a renowned Turkish Sociologist. Gotta love nut-jobs, like this asshole! They’re so entertaining!
