Theresa May without veil during a visit to Saudi Arabia
She decided not to wear a veil. Theresa May arrived in Saudi Arabia bare-headed Tuesday and met Salmane bin Abdelaziz Al Saoud on Wednesday without having his hair covered.
The British Prime Minister, like Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Angela Merkel, did not follow the women’s dress code in this ultra-conservative Middle East monarchy. Nor do the recommendations of his own country: as the UK government website indicates, in the public space of this country, “women should wear ample clothing and a complete coat – an abaya -veil”.
