prisoners of gender apartheid

Under the subheading ‘a women's lot in Saudi’ of a headline ‘the Australian who has become a prisoner of gender apartheid’, a recent news article reports that ‘women in Saudi Arabia must have a male guardian’.

Australian women are familiar with gender apartheid because their nation’s Constitution provides for men's legislatures only, albeit that the supervision they endure is less extreme than the male supervision of women in Saudi Arabia.
