Topics: Saudi Arabia

Tuesday, 10 April 2012

In an interview with the BBC, Princess Abu Dabo called for major systemic changes in her country, but stopped short of suggesting anything that might result in her getting pelted to death with stones.

As one of 900 children sired by Ibn Saud, the founding monarch of the oil pit known as Saudi Arabia, the princess enjoys enormous power in her country, not as much as any of her nearly two million male relatives, but she's number three among those not allowed to drive a car or show their face in public.

The changes called for included a shake up of the education system, the judicial system, changes to divorce law, and social services.

"Men should still be allowed to kill women for looking at other men," said the princess, "But they should no longer be allowed to kill women for looking out the window." She added, "These things have to be done incrementally."

The fact that the Princess Abu Dabo spoke out at all is a brave step, one that is likely to provoke outrage among her countrymen. "I just thought it was important to advocate for important changes, you know, so this place will stop being so ass-backward."
