For many young Saudis, life is all about their apps.

They don't have free speech, so they debate on "Twitter.

They can't flirt at the mall, so they do it on WhatsApp and

Snapchat. Since women are banned from driving, they get rides from car

services like Uber and Careem. And in a country where shops close for

Muslim prayers five times a day, there are apps that not only issue a

call to prayer from your pocket but also calculate whether you can

reach, say, the nearest Dunkin' Donuts before it shuts.

Confronted with an austere version of Islam and rigid social codes

that sharply restrict their lives, young people in Saudi Arabia are

increasingly relying on social media to express themselves, make money,

and even meet potential spouses.

Many of the country's 31 million people, in fact, have

multiple smartphones and spend hours online each day. This explosion of

digital communication has been revolutionary because it's taking

place in one of the world's most tradition-bound places.

"On one level, it looks like any modern city," says Janet

Breslin Smith, who lived in the capital, Riyadh, for five years when her

husband was the U.S. ambassador. "But as your eyes gaze down to

people walking, it almost takes you back to biblical times. People are

dressed as they have for thousands of years."


One of the most powerful nations in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia

is an important U.S. ally in the region. Its influence comes from two

factors: It has more than 25 percent of the world's known oil

reserves; and it's the birthplace of Islam and the guardian of its

two most sacred sites, in Mecca and Medina.

A strict fundamentalist interpretation of Islam known as Wahhabism

governs all aspects of life, with the Koran and the teachings of the

Prophet Muhammad effectively serving as a constitution.

Unrelated men and women are completely segregated from one another.

Girls and boys attend separate schools, and separate classes in college.

Females must wear black head-to-toe coverings called abayas in public

once they hit puberty. When they go out, they must be accompanied by a

male relative. Religious police zealously enforce these rules, arresting

and sometimes flogging violators.

Some Freedom on Twitter

The nation is a near-absolute monarchy led by King Salman, a member

of the Al Saud family that has ruled Saudi Arabia since 1932. A push for

reform resulted in local council elections being held for the first time

in 2005, but the councils are largely symbolic and have no real power.

Women, who in recent years have been pushing for basic rights like

driving, will be allowed to vote in local elections this month (see

"A Push for Women's Rights," p. 10).

But it's technology rather than political reform that's

rocking the conservative culture of Saudi Arabia.

The nation has the ideal conditions for a social media boom: speedy

Internet, disposable income from oil wealth, and a youthful

population--more than half of Saudis are under age 30--with few social

options. Unlike China and Iran, Saudi Arabia hasn't blocked sites

like Facebook and Twitter, although it doesn't tolerate commentary

against the government or Islam. The Saudi monarchy appears to have

decided that the benefits of social media as an outlet for young people

outweigh the risk that it will be used to mobilize political opposition.

For now, some of the biggest changes brought by technology have

been in how young Saudis find a spouse. In a society where dating--or

even friendship between boys and girls--is forbidden, marriages have

long been arranged by families. In fact, most Saudi girls have

traditionally met their husbands for the first time when they became

engaged. Now, social media is enabling romance to spring up without

violating traditions outright.

When Raqad Alabdali, a conservative 22-year-old from a Riyadh

suburb, made some melancholy posts on Twitter not long ago, a man she

didn't know responded to her with a private message. They were soon

messaging constantly.

"He kept checking on me to make sure I wasn't sad

anymore, and then we tweeted with each other daily," she says.

They exchanged phone numbers for an occasional call, and she

eventually sent him a photo of herself unveiled, in a white dress with

bare shoulders and eye makeup on her face. He said he wanted to marry

her, so his mother called hers. The couple is planning a family meeting

to make then-engagement formal, Alabdali says. It will be their first

time in the same room.

"I don't have any doubt that he'll marry me or is

serious about me," she says. Why so sure? Her older brother and his

wife met on Facebook.

'A Window to the Outside World'

The boom in social media has also created opportunities for young

Saudi entrepreneurs. Ali Kalthami is in charge of content for a company

called Telfazll, which produces comedy videos for YouTube. The company

now employs more than 30 people and has branched out into commercials,

games, and talent management for its actors.


"A lot of people are stuck to their phones--and really bored,

" says Kalthami.

In a country where movie theaters are banned, YouTube and Internet

streaming have provided an escape from the censors and a way to see

what's going on beyond Saudi Arabia's borders.

"Everything to do with technology is a window to the outside

world," says Hoda Abdulrahman al-Helaissi, a female member of the

Shura Council, an advisory body appointed by the king.

But technology hasn't brought Westernstyle liberalization.

Many young Saudis remain committed to and proud of their culture, and

religious conservatives use social media as adeptly as liberals.

And the power of social media is limited in a society lacking

political rights. The Saudi monarchy takes a hard line against dissent,

doling out punishments viewed as barbaric in the democratic world. For

participating in antigovernment protests three years ago, Ali al-Nimr,

20, was sentenced to a public beheading. Raif Badawi, a young blogger

who called for women's rights and freedom of speech, is serving 10

years behind bars; he's also been sentenced to a flogging of 1,000


But most young Saudis are challenging the status quo in more subtle

ways. For Haya al-Fahad, 27, social media has become her livelihood. She

quit her first job after graduating from college because one-third of

her pay went to the driver she needed to get to and from work.

She now works from home, making bracelets she sells online. That

gives her more time to manage her three Facebook pages, three Instagram

accounts, and two Twitter feeds.

"This is my identity," she says, waving her smartphone.

"I don't know how people survived 10 years ago without

RELATED ARTICLE: A push for women's rights.

Women will vote for the first time this month, but what they really

want is to get behind the wheel


On paper, it looks like a sea change for women's rights in

Saudi Arabia: For the first time ever, women will be allowed to vote in

municipal elections Best Insulated Water Bottles this month.

But in reality, experts say, it probably won't make much

difference. For starters, municipal elections in Saudi Arabia

aren't very important since local elected officials have little


And even if the elections mattered more, many women won't be

able to register to vote or get to the polls in a nation where

they're not allowed to drive.

Despite small steps forward, Saudi women are still denied basic

rights that women in other countries take for granted. Under the Saudi

interpretation of Islamic law, a woman's testimony in court

doesn't carry the same weight as a man's. Saudi women need

written permission from a male relative to enroll at a university, to

marry, to have medical procedures, and to leave the country or even

apply for a passport.

"For the entire course of your life, you have to have a man to

give you permission to do basic aspects of your life," says Rothna

Begum, a Saudi Arabia expert at Human Rights Watch in London.

This system affects all aspects of life--and severely limits the

impact of any political reforms. For example, the government has said

that women may run in the municipal elections, but they can't

interact with unrelated men. How can they run for office without

speaking to potential voters?

It's the ban on driving that's troubled Saudi women the

most and drawn the most attention worldwide. Saudi Arabia is the only

country in the world that prohibits women from driving. The

kingdom's ultraconservative clerics say allowing women to drive

would promote "licentiousness." Several years ago, Saudi

activists launched a campaign to lift the ban: Women got behind the

wheel and posted videos of themselves driving as a protest.

Last year, a royal advisory council recommended lifting the

ban--though only for women over 30 who have permission from a male

relative to drive. So far, no action has been taken.

But there's evidence that younger Saudi women are finding

other ways to assert themselves. Excluded from an all-male convention of

computer gamers in Riyadh, a bunch of 20-something Saudi women organized

their own computer gaming convention in 2012. It has drawn 3,000 women

8 Graph

Analyze a graph on social media use in selected nations, including

Saudi Arabia (p. 11 of this Teacher's Guide).

* Summarize the author's purpose in the first three paragraphs

of the article.

Author's purpose, text structure

(The author's purpose is to introduce the central idea that

Saudi Arabia's strict interpretation of Islamic law and rigid

social codes do not keep young Saudis from enjoying social media. In

fact, the rigid culture may even give young people more reason to use

social media apps. The author notes, for example, "They can't

flirt at the mall, so they do it on WhatsApp and Snapchat. ")

* Use evidence from the text to explain why social media use has

become so widespread in Saudi Arabia.

Analyze cause & effect, cite text evidence

(Saudi Arabia has oil wealth, so citizens have disposable income

they can use to buy cellphones and other devices. The country has

"speedy Internet ... and a youthful population" with "few

social options." In addition, its monarchy has decided not to block

social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. All of these factors have

contributed to the country's social media explosion.)

* How does the author support the claim that "some of the

biggest changes brought by technology have been in how young Saudis find

a spouse"?

Analyze authors' claims

(The author explains that dating is forbidden in Saudi Arabia, so

families have traditionally arranged marriages. But with social media,

young people are meeting online and getting to know each other before

discussing marriage. He writes, "social media is enabling romance

to spring up without violating traditions outright. " He then goes

on to describe how one couple met via social media.)

* In the article, Hoda Abdulrahman al-Helaissi, a female adviser to

the king, says that technology is a "window to the outside

world." What do you think she means, and why might Saudi Arabia

need such a window?

Make inferences

(Al-Helaissi means that technology gives Saudis a chance to see

what's going on outside of their own country. Movie theaters are

banned, so Saudis are rarely exposed to other cultures. However, social

media, YouTube, and some other forms of contemporary technology are not


* Predict whether social media will lead to democratic reforms in

Saudi Arabia in the next 10 years. Support your response with evidence

from the text.

Make inferences, cite text evidence

(Responses will vary but should be supported with text evidence.

Students may argue that reform is unlikely because the Saudi monarchy

continues to aggressively punish dissenters. In addition, "Many

young Saudis remain committed to ... their culture, and religious

conservatives use social media as adeptly as liberals." Other

students may argue that reform will come soon because social media

allows Saudis to see how things can be, and because women have begun

pushing for rights.)

* Read the sidebar, "A Push for Women's Rights."

What does it add to your understanding of Saudi Arabia?

Integrate multiple sources

(The sidebar illustrates just how restricted women are in Saudi

Arabia. It notes that although women have recently earned the right to

vote in municipal elections, these elected positions hold little power.

What's more, Saudi women are still not allowed to drive and must

have a man's permission to do almost anything.)
