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.
Truth is out of style

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