Society’s Norms

Society.

I hate society so much. 

Girls are taught from such a young age that “beautiful” is in the shape of a plastic barbie doll, when in reality it’s not possible to have that figure. Once they hit teenage years that’s when it goes downhill with media opinions and everyone around them on diets and talking about how skinny this person and that person is. Society puts such a pressure on girls that they feel in order to fit in, they need to be a size 0. No. In order to fit in, they should be as healthy as possible! I’ve fallen under that pressure so many times and I’m now starting to come out of it. I am who I am and I’m starting to accept that. Of course I want to be that girl who walks down the street and people think she’s gorgeous, but will I ever feel like that? Probably not and I’m okay with that. It breaks my heart to see people falling under the pressure of society because it’s not fair. “Heavy” girls feel the need to wear baggy clothing because they’re paranoid and they get judged if they wear tight clothing. Who the hell thinks it’s acceptable to judge someone because of what they look like?! People should start minding their own business.

School. School is a very messed up place. Teenagers try to avoid it so much because if they do go, they feel like they’re being judged all day. Teachers put pressure on students to stand up in class and speak in front of everyone! No person should be forced to do something they don’t want to do. Teachers and parents need to wake up and start realising that there are valuable reasons that teenagers don’t want to be in school and not because they “can’t be bothered”.

Why should someone feel bad for the way they dress, they way they look, the colour of their skin, the way they feel etc. Bottom line is, they shouldn’t. Everyone is absolutely perfect in their own unique way.

I know people say “we hate society, yet we are society” but NEVER will I associate myself with this sick society. I would never judge anyone for any reason.

Nadia Haitham, who is a sixteen year old teenager, fantasizes and creates images in people’s minds using written words. She has always admired the idea of writing ever since she was a little girl with piggy tails and somehow, she’s chasing her dream! Nadia is currently an IGCSE student in The Continental School Of Cairo and she’s in the eleventh grade. They say Nadia is too young but she asks repeatedly, “if I don’t start now, then when?!” She blows her candles on the fifteenth of July, her zodiac sign is Cancer and she’s Egyptian. In 2015, she has written her first completed book that’s called, “Love Of A Teenage Girl” which is published on a writing website called, Wattpad. She has won several awards for the book which she’s planning to publish in the future. Nadia has also written a few other books and created quotes of her own but she hasn’t completed them yet but she’s planning to. She’s into music and learning something new every single day using the help of the social media world. She believes that writing is an underestimated art, it’s exactly like painting colorful images in people’s minds by using words of black and white.

AlUla, one of the Kingdom’s most beautiful spots and a stunning heritage place, will not only be sharing its historic treasures with the world but will soon give residents a new design and feel to their homes.

Besides invigorating tourism, generating jobs and reviving the economy by drawing in thousands of tourists, the Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) is now working towards enhancing the lives of residents by designing their homes as part of a major urban regeneration project for the historic Saudi location.

The AlUla Design Studio (UDS), launched by RCU, is a new public service that is working towards reshaping the future development of the local community.

“We’re driven by good design, good outcomes, by protecting our heritage, the environment, and by making sure that we create sustainable infrastructure,” Stephen Murray, chief of county zoning and planning at the RCU, told Arab News.

“We would like to be a model not only for Saudi Arabia but also the world (on) how you can design new places, live with the environment, be sustainable and protect it, but also open it to the world.” He added.

The RCU aims at promoting AlUla town as a model of urban planning, regeneration and quality of life in the Kingdom. The UDS initiative will provide residents of AlUla South with the chance to have an opinion in the property styles that suit their locality.

“One of the things we’ve looked at, at the royal commission, is creating great places to live, creating neighborhoods, places where people enjoy and the community can grow together,” said Murray.

We can’t wait to see the results of such a beautiful project.

New Marriage Policies To Grant Women of Saudi Arabia More Rights

Published

By

Saudi Arabia is still working towards achieving equality with focus on equalizing the legislation surrounding marriage contracts for women of the Kingdom.

According to several sources that were interviewed by the Kingdom’s daily newspaper Okaz, word has it that the Ministry of Justice is working towards amending new policies that will guarantee women’s right in marriage.

One of these amendments will include a new process that will have women reviewing and consenting contracts before finalizing. In an attempt to eliminate implications of coercion and to also consider the level of satisfaction afforded to brides-to-be, the new policies will grant women a greater sense of freedom.

Not only that, but the new policies will also ask women to explicitly state their contentment with their new prospective life partners, and and also grant them the chance to appoint a legal guardian throughout the process.

This is seen to be another great leap towards achieving the right women of Saudi Arabia deserve and ensure their involvement in the matters that affect their lives.

It also makes perfect sense to have them involved in what is considered to be the most important contract of their lives.
