Quote of the Day (Donna Abu-Nasr, on Pickup Moves By Saudi Arabian Men)

“Often, while I was stuck in traffic, young men would slam Post-its or papers with their mobile phone numbers scribbled on them on the window of my car. That was one way to pick up women. Another was to go to the mall and throw the little slips of paper at the feet of women covered head to toe in black.”— Donna Abu-Nasr, Bloomberg’s Saudi Arabia bureau chief, “An Orange Bra in Riyadh,” in Our Women on the Ground:Essays by Arab Women Reporting from the Arab World, edited by Zahra Hankir (2019)
