Saudi women and men sentenced to flogging for speaking to each other

The case of gender segregation in Saudi Arabia is still prevalent, as seen with this latest distasteful news:
A Saudi court sentenced six women and five men to imprisonment and flogging on charges of “obscenity” after they were caught together in a villa in the city of Jedda.

The Jedda Police’s vice squad raided the seaside house following complaints from neighbors. Alcohol and indecent photos were found in the possession of the revelers, some of whom were reportedly drunk and resisted arrest.

The court initially sentenced them to between eight days’ and a year’s imprisonment and 150 lashes, but after an appeal was upheld they were sentenced to between two months and a year’s imprisonment and 300 lashes.

By law, Saudi women are banned from mingling with men to whom they’re not related

This is the latest setback for women in the country.
The same article notes that the Starbucks coffee chain has been panned for adhering to the country's offensive gender segregation laws. I think this is grounds for boycotting Starbucks for doing business in such a hellhole.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
