Saudi Arabia Enforces Lingerie Shop Changes

(Filed Under Financial and General Interest News). The Saudi Arabian government has given the country’s lingerie shops three months to replace all male employees with females in response to a measure passed this summer by King Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud.

The king passed the measure in response to protests and boycotts from Saudi women, who had previously been prohibited from working in intimate apparel stores. By replacing men with women in the shops, the government is also working to reduce female unemployment in the country, which is estimated at approximately 25 to 30 percent.

The government decreed that women hired by lingerie and cosmetics shops must comply with traditional dress, including head covers and gowns, and that the shops must set up security systems for protection and make any necessary store modifications to ensure no men would be able to interact with female clients.

According to a statement by Ministry of Labor assistant undersecretary Ali bin Suleiman, store employees that fail to comply with the measure’s stipulations will be deprived of government services, including visa sponsorships. Ministry of Labor workers will carry out routine inspections to verify that shops are abiding by the law.
