KSA ministries can't keep up with health needs of Saudi women

News item: Saudi women could see their private sports clubs and gyms closed down because the government seems likely to agree licensing of the clubs for men only.

To paraphrase a cliché: These are times that try women’s souls.

Believe me, Wallhi!

Apparently there is no agency that is responsible for licensing women’s sports club and the Saudi Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs is shutting down unlicensed clubs unless they operated by medical organizations.

It makes me wonder that if there is indeed no agency responsible for licensing women’s club then why does the Rural Affairs ministry think it has the authority to shut them down.
