women selling tea

These innocent looking photos of 2 Muslim women selling tea on the street in Saudi Arabia have sparked outrage around the world.

The oil rich Saudi Capital of Riyadh cut back on paying oil dividends to its citizens while urging its citizenry to go out and find skilled and unskilled jobs.

As a result, Saudi women are working outside of their homes, according to Breitbart.com.

In the photos circulating on social media, 2 young women are seen selling tea from a stall set up on a street corner in Riyahd.

Women’s rights are nearly non-existent in Saudi Arabia. Most women must depend on their husbands or the Saudi government to provide for them.

The average monthly salary for men in Riyadh is 15,722 SAR or $4,245 U.S. dollars a month.

“Work is not a shameful thing but I wouldn’t want to see our daughters sinking this low, especially as long as our natural resources are plentiful and are disseminated around the world,” tweeted wrote one user.

He added: “May Allah punish the corrupt”.

Another Twitter user blamed foreign feminists for corrupting their women.

“It’s all because of the foreigners, who are allowed to do whatever they want.”

“Will these women’s rights activists be required to find work for these respectable girls? Of course not. All they want [is] depraved freedom.”

Twitter user Albandari wrote: “Work is not shameful but in all honesty nobody would want to see his mother or sister do this job, for heavens’ sake.”.

  • MissyJ

    Rose Scowlers; y’all ever heard that White Out is racist?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Indies beauty

    Okay a few things about this article
    1. This is my first time hearing about this from Muslim men. I’ve worked with a few Muslim women and my campus has plenty of female Muslim students
    2. I can’t understand the blame on western feminism. Yes there is a divide in modern day feminism between women of color and white women, but they all advocate the same things. The problem is the social climate everyone lives in. The only harm to the Saudi women is when they try apply these principles in an overwhelming misogynist environment.

  • MissyJ

    I stopped following a fitness chick when she started hawking that crap. Bish you a lie. And I always thought her butt was bought not worked for.. That solidified it for me

  • SaltineCrackers

  • Kwamella Diquan

    I was there for 10 months while serving in the military (GULF WAR). The women over there want to be us. They constantly stared at us and would turn their heads quick fast and in a hurry if caught looking at us. I would not want to live there or go back there. They have to walk behind their husbands – their husbands have 2-3 wives. Its sad the way women are treated over there. They can miss me with all that BS!

  • Renee Bee

    Wow. Thanks for your service. I have seen a hidden camera documentary about Saudi Arabia. It was just awful. One lady was slammed to the ground in the grocery store because she was there alone without a male family escort. The women are property and are treated worse than animals there. So sad and frustrating.

  • Renee Bee

    All systems are not firing correctly. ?

  • Sexy Lexy

    On any day in NYC you can go outside and see homeless people BEGGING for money … so I feel like I’m MISSING something here …. Dunkin Donuts Starbucks Orens ALL SELL COFFEE AND TEA … I go to a job everyday to support MYSELF … so I don’t understand it being an abomination for these heffas to work ???? this is an insult to working women EVERYWHERE … foh

  • MissyJ

    ^^^THIS ALL DAY^^^

  • quenelle

    I’m disappointed @sandrarose, that you would write an article with so many outright lies in them. First off women are allowed to hold public office 2ndly, it’s not considered an abominable sin for a woman to work – women work in Saudi Arabia; my wife works full-time – where do you get your facts from? 3rdly, while most Saudi women don’t work, their husbands provide allowing for them to better raise their children. Are you arguing the American model of children out of wed-lock, argue over child support for 18 years is a better way to do things? In their culture it’s considered shameful for an elderly lady to stoop selling tea on the corner – exactly what is your issue?

  • Kanyade

    i had to fast forward most of that because her voice is so annoying…and so is she.

    Hello !
    I’m Moroccan aka North African , you couldn’t pay me enough to go there . Although women can’t drive there , they do work , open businesses and wear the latest Runway fashions under those tents . All I know is my friends living there are not complaining .

  • Saharabutnotdry

    They live better than most Americans , I don’t know why we have to defend them if they like it .
    I had a Saudi friend who was also my classmate , she wears the tent ( as I call it ) when she goes back but booty shorts and showing her boob job while popping bottles in HER VIP section in the nightclub every Friday / Saturday .
    Never heard her complain about anything , sooo…?
