Saudi women hit gold at Olympics: allowed to compete for first time
2.5 5

I think its great they let a woman participate in the Olympics. I can understand the need to cover their hair,but I think it should be a woman's choice to do so. I think it is really sad how woman are treated in Islamic&Jewish culture. Men can dress as they please and even have multiple wives but women have to cover up&in some countries have their genitals cut. Yet noone thinks that men can also commit sexual sins. If woman want to dress modest,I think that's fine,but not allowing them to drive or play sports is out dated. I also think it should be a woman's choice to cover her head and wear long sleeves and long dresses. My landlord here in the USA is Muslim from Egypt & he let's his wife choose to cover her head and dress modest..her choice is not to cover her head & to wear shorts and tank tops. The men should be forced for 1 day to follow the same restrictions they enforce on woman..let's see how they like having to be covered from head to toe on a hot day,or not to be able to enjoy playing sports,or to be able to drive yourself to the store.
