A well known Saudi female columnist has hit back at opposition by women to plans to use beautiful Moroccan domestic helpers to replace their Indonesian maids, saying the North Africans can be trusted not to “stab wives in the back.”
Samar Al-Muqrin, writing her column in the Saudi Arabic language daily Al-Jazirah, said widely publicized opposition to the move — reportedly because the North African women “are beautiful and could snatch their husbands off them” — did not represent the true opinions of the majority of Saudi Arabian women.
