Saudi women's rights activist Manal al-Sherif, who last year urged women to defy a driving ban, said a man had contacted her to say he had received a text from the immigration authorities while at the airport with his wife.
"The authorities are using technology to monitor women," said Saudi author and journalist Badriya al-Bishr, who criticised the "state of slavery under which women are held" in the kingdom.
"This is technology used to serve backwardness in order to keep women imprisoned," she added.
Under laws influenced by the strict Wahabi interpretation of Islam, women are not allowed to leave Saudi Arabia without permission from their male guardian (a husband, father or brother), who must give consent by signing what is known as the "yellow sheet" at the airport or border.

Watch —not ONE peep from US feminists...! They wont even be asked...
When does the ball and chain become the norm?
They don’t care about other people.
They aren’t smart enough to realize one day this crap will be over their heads.
This is nothing compared to the technology they are using right here in the U.S. to track it’s own citizens instead of the real criminals.
They would claim that the Saudis are Republicans.
Only Husbands have those...
The ball and chain is the norm in Saudi. You should see the way they treat foreign nationals from the non-Western countries. They call them TCNs.(Third Country Nationals)
When the women from these countries return to Saudi they have to stay in the airport until their sponsor picks them up. They are deported after three days.
There’s an app for that ...
Saudi husbands 'alerted by text' if their Camels leave the bed
They could do something about this if they were so inclined. It's not really my problem.
>They would claim that the Saudis are Republicans.
No, first they would declare the saudis are Conservatives.
Then they would beat the gopE primary winner over the head with it.
And the principled will sit back and watch it happen.
” Your 7th wife has left the country....her destination is
some place in Nevada in the USA called Le Ranch du Poulette or the Chicken Ranch.”
This really would be an intolerable deprivation of liberty, equality, and basic human dignity if they didn’t have all that oil.
Strip away the smoke & mirrors now you have real Islam.
