A woman can now stay in a hotel alone as long as she carries identification.
The decree allowed the Ministry of Trade to outline new regulations simply requiring women to show photographic ID to hotel managers.
This must then be registered with local police.

Under Saudi Arabia's conservative Islamic code, women suffer severe restrictions on daily life.
They are not allowed to appear before a judge without a male representative, or travel abroad without a male guardian's permission.
Cause who knows where these
whores women might run off to.
