Female advisers will be heard, not seen

Saudi Arabia has said a screen will separate males and females on the country’s main advisory body to King Abdullah when women join it for the first time.

Women will be allowed to join the Shura Council, expected to reconvene early next year. The screen is seen as a compromise with hardliners. An official said technology would allow communication.
