When it comes to gender parity and more visibility for women, Saudi Arabia continues to fare badly. Which is why, the news of women of the country acquiring the right to drive found many rejoicing. But going by a video that has gone viral, it seems the women of Saudi Arabia still have a long way to go. While it makes for an absolute hilarious watch, no less, a rather unsettling clip of a fashion show which shows clothes being exhibited ‘in air’ has gone viral. So much seems to be the aversion towards female models walking the ramp, that the organisers thought it best (and we must say, rather innovative) to showcase clothes on hangers suspended on a cable.

Jina, a Kurdish woman, shared this video on Twitter with the caption, “I’m dying at this fashion show in Saudi, they weren’t allowed, female models”.

Watch the video here. 

Here are some of the reactions her post garnered thereafter.

While this seems funny definitely, that it also shows the regressive state of affairs in 2018 is also perturbing. What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments below.
