Vast majority of Saudi men say: “Eye makeup on women is what causes them to be sexually assaulted”

Ironically, in a country where women are required to wear full-face and body coverings in public, more than 86% of men said that excessive makeup was the main cause of the increase in public molestation of women.

Clarion Project  A survey conducted by the King Abdul Aziz Centre for National Dialogue in Saudi Arabia shows that Saudi men blame women for the rising rate of molestation in the Gulf. 

Saudi Arabia has no specific anti-molestations laws or penalties in place to combat indecent assault, a factor which was cited by 80 percent of the poll’s respondents as reason for  the increasing phenomenon of molestation of women. The survey made no mention of the strict modesty dress codes to which Saudi women must adhere.
