A photograph of one of the biggest women’s rights conferences in the Arab world, held in Saudi Arabia in 2012, has recently gone viral - because ironically not a single woman can be sighted in the photograph.

As reported by The Huffington Post, though the conference was based on the topic of “Women in Society”, no women were sighted in the event.

The picture which has gone viral was published by an Arab newspaper, Okaz, last year.

The conference was reportedly held at the University of Qassim and was apparently attended by representatives of 15 countries.

The report says that it once again brought to light the hypocrisy of Saudi Arabia.
