Women hit back at Twitter critics

women_twitter Several Saudi women have drafted a defamation report denouncing tweets that criticize their existence in numerous professions. Many of these women have argued that anyone who criticizes the role played by women is attacking the government, which has sanctioned and supported their work in various domains. Criticism was especially sharp about the recent decision to allow women to work in pharmacies, which is expected to be implemented soon. One female nurse, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that the nursing profession is routinely criticized and looked down upon. “I am shocked that people criticize women who work as nurses to help support their families,” she said. “I demand that authorities help us put a stop to being undermined and having our work in a vital profession underestimated.” One woman working at a commercial store concurred. “Anyone who abuses honest work should be held accountable to prevent dragging women into defamatory dilemmas,” she said. “Our existence in the working world has become a necessity. What is wrong with working as a cashier? Does this make us any less honorable or respectable?” “People who slander women working in the health sector are indirectly criticizing the government through their insinuation that government authorities have opened up a loophole for bad conduct,” said Dr. Sabah Abu Zinada. “These critics are hypocrites, because many allow male doctors to treat their wives,” she said. Abu Zinada has criticized the silence of the Labor and Health ministries toward the very attacks that have hindered the involvement of women in various sectors for so long. “The nursing sector might be affected by these vicious online attacks,” she said. “The government has spent millions on health education. My colleagues and I have personally taken it upon ourselves to educate the community about jobs in the health sector for thirty years now.” “These tweets threaten the health sector as a whole, especially since the number of female students studying nursing has doubled during the past decade,” she said. “This is a quantitative leap, so why are so many people trying to wreak havoc and destroy this vital sector?“
