An app…just for women…who live in or are visiting Saudi Arabia

The Los Angeles Times reports that an app exists that allows women in Saudi Arabia to understand their legal rights.

After fielding questions from women confused about their rights, Saudi lawyer Nasreen Issa, 30, created an app for iPhones and Android devices called “Know Your Rights.” It’s in Arabic and English, designed for both Saudis and foreign women living in or visiting the kingdom.

There’s an intro video explaining women’s basic rights, and icons to help navigate the legal system, which relies in part on Islamic religious law, or sharia.
