It is considered immoral for a women to say hello or greet a man, who is not her husband, in any way without an escort. This is due to sharia religious laws. Not only can women not greet men, but they also cannot vote, drive, or even ride bicycles in Saudi Arabia. This is a bizarre thought to us Americans because women are easily allowed to drive a car, or say hello to a man. One American women in Saudi Arabia was arrested and forced to sign false confession papers simply because she tried talking to a man in Starbucks. It is strange because women are allowed to fly airplanes here, but they cannot ride a bicycle.
