Starbucks in Riyad has a policy of not serving women. If a woman wants a coffee beverage, she will not be served unless she sends a man to get it for her.
In the West, we call those men ‘waiters’ 😉 – no, seriously, this is a pathetic cow-towing to theocratic discrimination, and not what I expect from Starbucks.
I will no longer patronize Starbucks in the United States, until this issue is addressed. I recommend writing to Starbucks corporate management.
A Riyad, le géant américain Starbucks a interdit l’accès de l’un de ses restaurants aux femmes. Une preuve de plus du non-respect du droit des femmes dans la péninsule arabique.
