Saudi Bans Women From Working 11pm to 9am

Mideast Saudi Women

The Saudi Labour Ministry has recently banned all women from working between 11pm to 9am.

The decision “ensures that women don’t begin work too early and don’t work after streets become empty”, because immoral acts may happen if they do, the newspaper added.

It was not clear whether the rule applied to both Saudis and expats but it is likely to only apply to local women who face far stricter working regulations whom are also banned from driving. 

Under King Abdullah, Saudi Arabia, which adheres to a strict Islamic conservatism that applies many restrictions on women, has gradually opened up working opportunities for females, targeting specific roles such as assistants in women’s shop.
