Bowing to Islam: Dunkin’ Donuts: No Entry for Unescorted Women; Starbucks: No Entry for Women!

Unescorted women are no longer allowed to enter Dunkin’ Donuts.

In Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, that is.

New Dunkin’ Donut signs have been posted on the doors stating that women cannot enter unescorted.


.Donuts-697228


Starbucks in Riyadh prohibits all women from entering– sending them out to have their driver pick up their drink. In Arabic and English the sign states:

“Please no entry for ladies. Only send your driver to order. Thank you.”

The sign refers to their “driver” because women are prohibited from driving in Saudi Arabia. And, they cannot go to school, the doctor, or leave their house without a male chaperone– and only after first receiving permission from their father or husband.

Currently, women can enter McDonald’s and Pizza Hut through separate entrances. They still are required to sit and eat separately from the men and wear full face veils. (Families can eat in a separate area behind screens so that women can remove the veil covering their faces.)

For Starbucks, the sign is “necessary,” because the wall originally built inside the eating area designed to separate the seating of men and women had collapsed. And– more importantly– because the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, had instructed it to not admit women– or face severe penalties and/or be shut down.

A Starbucks spokesman told the Express: “All our stores provide equal amenities, service, menu, and seating to men, women and families. We are working as quickly as possible as we refurbish our Jarir store, so that we may again welcome all customers in accordance with local customs.”

The U.K. Daily Express points to a Twitter campaign designed to promote awareness of how women are treated in Saudi Arabia, protesting that western franchises like Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, and Starbucks are promoting sexism and discriminating against women.

How effective the #StopEnslavingSaudiWomen campaign will be, is another matter. Expecting women to be treated equally to men is nonsensical. Inequality is inherent to what the Qur’an teaches. Women don’t have the same legal rights as men in any Islamic country specifically and only because of what the Qur’an instructs about second class citizens.

My nephew's bf from Saudi has become a huge supporter of women's rights since coming here for school. The things he tells of are horrifying. I personally will not support businesses that do business there, if I am aware of it.

When in Saudi, do as the Saudis; when in America, become a feminist.

When he goes back to Saudi, I wonder how much of a woman libber he will be.

ok-snark over- I wonder why it took his coming to the US to recognize that his  Saudi government was treating his mother, sisters, aunts.... all women unfairly.

op- the Koran teaches equality for both men and women; the corrupt government run by power-hungry men treat women as second class.

but, you knew that already and just like to peddle lies- nevermind- carry on...
