原文标题：Saudi Arabia plans a city only for women!
It's truly a no man's land! Saudi Arabia is planning to build a city exclusively for women in a bid to encourage career oriented females within its strict Sharia law.
The Saudi Industrial Property Authority (Modon) has been asked to bring the country at par with the rest of the modern world by building the all women city, with construction to begin next year, according to a Saudi media report.
The new city will allow women's desire to work without defying the country's strict Islamic laws.
Sharia Law is the moral code and religious law of Islam dealing with crime, politics, and economics, as well as personal matters such as sexual intercourse, hygiene, diet, prayer, and fasting.
Although Saudi Sharia law does not prohibit women to work, figures show that only 15 per cent of women are represented in the workforce.
The plan coincides with the government's ambitions to get women to play a more active part in the development of the country. Among the stated objectives are to create jobs, particularly for younger women.
"I'm sure that women can demonstrate their efficiency in many aspects and clarify the industries that best suits their interests, their nature and their ability," Modon's deputy director-general, Saleh Al-Rasheed, said.
"We are now working on a second industrial city for women. We have plans to establish a number of women-only industries in various parts of the kingdom," the 'Daily Mail' quoted Rasheed, as telling Saudi daily newspaper al-Eqtisadiah.
There will be women-run firms and production lines for women.
As part of a mass overhaul of its workforce and its bid to get women into work, the state is also attempting to replace foreign salespeople with Saudi women.
This summer, women started replacing staff in cosmetics and perfume shops, only half a year after they replaced male sales staff in lingerie stores.
Last September, King Abdullah announced that women will be able to vote and run in the 2015 local elections.
How a saudi female will go there ?

Suppose a saudi woman goes to that city from a nearby place. She must be fully covered, driven by a her male relative, dropped at the designated shariah parking place from where she will move onto the city. Right ?

Correct. Women are not allowed to drive, for fear of running away.

Saudi has shown the world some thing very much appreciated by world of women. No ogling, no molestattion(!!!!) and safe even if she is barely dressed. There are beaches for whites and especially for Americans. A country to live in without fear for law abiding persons.

ITs too risky for the women to be there. They risk being stoned to death for adultery if seen talking to a man in this city. Who wants to take such a big risk?

If others stop buying oil from Saudi, then the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will go back to its nomad days, which was just 50 years back. It will be a matter of time before the world finds out alternate energy sources to replace oil - the hybrid cars coming to the market now are just a start. Wait and watch, you Saudi lover

There is a huge population of expatriate Indians in Saudi Arabia, numbering over 1,500,000 as of the year 2000 and constituting at least 7% of the country's total population. Indians are notably the largest immigrant community in Saudi Arabia.

Can they build a temple or a church there as you do in India or in USA or Europe. It is still primitive in many ways especially its mindset with other faiths.

well for your kind information mr manzar, they DO consider self gratification by women as a big sin according to sharia- in case you were ignorant about it. female circumcision is done only to stop them from this purported 'sin'.
