Misconceptions about the Arab world
December 5, 2007 3:25am CST
I have noticed that in the western world a lot of misconceptions and prejudices (about arabs and arabian countries) exist. Such as women walking 5 feet behind the men or about more controversial topics like polygamy. I live in Saudi Arabia and I love it here. And I would be more than happy to hear about what you think of the Arab world and try and convince/prove to you otherwise (if you are infact wrong of course ;) ). So please shoot those prejudices at me and ill try to dispel the untrue ones, may they concern religion, law or just the infrastructure of countries.

I do not know much about the Arab world or womens place in it. I always thought that Arabian women 'are all forbidden to work and must stay home with the children.am I right or wrong? also that they are considered less than men. I know I must be mistaken 'here.
