Soap Opera Addiction Cartoon

{jcomments on}Soup Opera addiction cartoon

Soap Opera addiction is the title of this cartoon by Saudi cartoonist Rabeea. It reflects a negative image of women as lazy, over weight and good for nothing that the husband is forced to drag his wife by force from the television screen.

It is a well known fact that women in Saudi Arabia are deprived of enjoying many activities because of the society’s limitations imposed on women, including the guardianship rule that forces women to ask for permission if they want to do any activities outside their homes, which leaves them with little choice of entertainment.

The second point is the Saudi male cartoonists missed out  the fact that men watch television for hours on end in Saudi Arabia, especially football matches, stock markets and investments programs, which make them equal regarding watching television.
