How do they say this stuff wihtout laughing?

Saudi Arabia, the most backwards rich nation on the earth. Check this out:
He also said that segregation makes it easier for women in the Kingdom to reach high leadership positions. There are more women in key positions in the country than in developed countries, he added.

Okay, one one hand, complete segregation, including no right to drive a car or even be outside without a chaperon, and some idiot saying that is a good thing for women. Then we find out that just now, in 2009, there is the very first woman deputy minister.

That place is not on my list of travel destinations.
