I always find it interesting how KSA news is reported internationally. See below and the following: https://www.reddit.com/r/worldnews/comments/43znbp/women_barred_from_entering_starbucks_in_saudi/
The discussion thread on Reddit has 2000 replies, 5000 likes and is trending on 'WorldNews'. The article below refers to numerous Tweets on the subject. Lots of people have an opinion on Starbucks banning women from their stores in KSA....The problem is, that's not what's actually happened at all!
The truth of the story is that one branch of Starbucks has temporarily stopped serving woman customers whilst building work is carried out.
