Saudi boycott

"The boycott was launched on Tuesday by about 50 women who gathered in the Red Sea port of Jiddah at the Al-Bidaya Breast-feeding Resource and Women's Awareness Center, which is run by Modie Batterjee. The aim is to push for implementation of a law that has been on the books since 2006 which says only female staff can be employed in women's apparel stores." (thanks Marcy)
