Saudi Arabia launches Girls' Council to empower women — without any girls

Publicity photos from the launch of Saudi Arabia's new Girls' Council have gone viral for all the wrong reasons -- namely, the lack of actual women in attendance.

Saudi Arabia is not known for its strong record on women's rights so the formation of a council, intended to provide women with more opportunities and a voice, was taken to be encouraging.

But photos have now emerged of the council's first meeting, and there are no women in sight -- the photos show 13 men.
KSA leads the way.

since women there have no rights, it kinda makes sense to put men in charge of ther council
