Women in Saudi Intelligence

A Saudi royal speaks:
"Female members of Saudi Arabia's General Intelligence Directorate have won plaudits from the agency's chief, Prince Muqrin Bin Abdul Aziz.

"'Every Saudi woman can be proud of the excellent performance of their fellow members in the General Intelligence Directorate... Their reports, analysis and proposals are 10 times better than their male counterparts,' he said.

"Prince Muqrin made the remarks extolling female employees of the agency during a press conference in Riyadh on Saturday evening during a visit to King Saud University."

This is probably meant to play into the larger debate within Saudi society over women's proper professional roles.
