Sex and the City It Isn't

A year and a half ago, I reviewed Girls of Riyadh for Seeing Indigo, calling it a glimpse into the lives of four young Saudi women that Westerners rarely know. Too bad Saudi women still have more to worry about when they're enjoying the frivolity of shopping than, "Choo or Blahnik?"

The story about only men being allowed to work in women's lingerie shops has been making waves on a variety of outlets recently, including on NPR and the BBC. Women in the kingdom are taking a stand, through Facebook and beyond. Breathe life into an old book review--learn more and maybe join this fight for privacy and respect.
