Women in Saudi Arabia will no longer need to use separate entrances from men or sit behind partitions at restaurants in the latest measure announced by the government that upends a major hallmark of conservative restrictions that had been in place for decades. The decision, which essentially erodes one of the most visible gender segregation restrictions in place, was announced on Sunday by the Municipal and Rural Affairs Ministry. Some restaurants and cafes in Jiddah and Riyadh’s upscale hotels had already been allowing unrelated men and women to sit freely. The statement noted that the long list of published decisions was aimed at attracting investments and creating greater business opportunities.
