Women And Saudi Society

Katie explains the rules for women in Saudi culture. They are not permitted to drive and must wear abayas and headscarves to walk in public. She then shows viewers the building that is command central for the muttaween, the religious police. With the help of a translator, she approaches a relative of a muttawa and tries to get an answer about what the group's role is in Saudi society. Later, she shows viewers Chop Chop Square, where public executions are performed.
