Saudi Arabia is planning to build a new city exclusive to women, as a way to combine the strict Sharia law, while addressing the needs of career-oriented women in the country.

The construction of the gender-segregated city will begin next year.

Saudi Arabia is looking to offer a place for women to work without violating Sharia law.

The closed off section in the Eastern city of Hafuf is looking to bring 500 million riyals ($133.3 million) in investments, and will create approximately 5,000 jobs in the pharmaceuticals, textiles and food processing industries.

Some may question whether a segregated city is really a step in the right direction, but at the very least, it provides Saudi women with more opportunities than they have had previously.
