War on Women: IKEA Airbrushes Women From Saudi Catalog

Posted by on Oct 01, 2012 at 8:42 am

Why not just airbrush a burka over them?

Ikea’s catalog is printed in 198 million copies and looks almost the same in 27 languages and in 38 countries. With one big exception. In the Saudi Arabian version of the catalog almost all women have been erased, Swedish newspaper Metro said.

Sweden’s minister of trade Ewa Björling said the retouched images are a “sad example” of women oppression.

“Women can not be retouch away in reality. If Saudi Arabia does not allow women to appear [in public] or work, they lose about half their intellectual capital”, she told Metro.

“These pictures is sad example that shows that there is a long way to go in terms of equality between men and women in Saudi Arabia”.

Just pathetic.

Here’s an example. Hey, where’d that woman go?

    She’s dressed in a black pup-tent being beaten by her goat-humper of a husband.
