Saudis use electronic tracking on wives

Airport system alerts men of attempt to leave country

(London Daily Mail) Saudi Arabian women are being monitored by an electronic system at airports that notifies their male ‘guardians’ when they try to leave the country.

Women in the Muslim country, which has long been criticized for its limitations on women’s rights, are required to have a male guardian responsible for them.

The new system now sends a text message to the men informing them that the woman is leaving or entering the country, even if the pair are together.
