WALKING WHILE UNCOVERED – Hey Western feminists, stop for a second fantasising about how “Handmaid’s Tale” is just like Trump’s America (and it was written in 1985 – wasn’t Margaret Atwood farsighted?) and consider a real life case of a woman who, if identified and located, will be punished for not wearing the clothes she is supposed to be wearing:
The authorities in Saudi Arabia are investigating a young woman who posted a video of herself wearing a miniskirt and crop-top in public.
The woman, a model called “Khulood”, shared the clip of her walking around a historic fort in Ushayqir.
The footage sparked a heated debate on social media, with some calling for her arrest for breaking the conservative Muslim country’s strict dress code.
Other Saudis came to the woman’s defence, praising her “bravery”.
Women in Saudi Arabia must wear loose-fitting, full-length robes known as “abayas” in public, as well as a headscarf if they are Muslim. They are also banned from driving and are separated from unrelated men.

One of the main organisers of the Women’s March, Linda Sarsour, of course supports the Saudi-style sharia. Stay woke, Western feminists. And covered.
