Is it hard to be a foreign woman in Saudia Arabia?

Posted in Saudi Arabia forum

My fiancé get a job offer in Riyadh so we will move to Saudia Arabia next year. How is it to be a woman there? I am affraid that I won't have as much liberty than in Switzerland there. I feel lost when I think that I will move there, maybe because I do not know anything from the middle east and nobody from there... Help me please! I will be really happy to receive advices, testimonials, contacts, etc!

    Saudi women are so lucky to live in Saudi Arabia because they are so so secured physically and financially. They can indulge in any activity but with consent of the male head of the family. Usually they are not allowed to move around without covering their heads. God bless them!

    I hope you enjoy ur stay in KSA. Riyadh is kind of a closed city where the majority of the people are so strict about everything and also the religion. Some people from other places like Jeddah or some foreigners from outside KSA call them extremely "close-minded". You'll be fine just don't forget your abaya before you leave home :D

    Things are notably different in Jeddah though. People are broad-minded and liberal at some point and the city is urbanized.

    I'm not saying that Jeddah is better than Riyadh or anything. Those are only facts. Both cities are unique in there own way :D

    Thanks for your answer Georgina it's good to have a woman point of view :)
    As Aleksandra, more feedback from girls could be more than welcome! Come on guys lend your computer to your wives and your girl friends! XD (don't misunderstood me, all you answer are really precious for me :) it's just that I would like to have girls feedback as well!)
    And I have one more question in my mind. How did you feel when you just arrived in Saudia Arabia? Did you had to face a cultural shock or not? How long did it take you to feel at home there?
