Ikea's Saudi Arabia catalog erases women; company expresses regret
Tiffany HsuThe Ikea catalog distributed in Saudi Arabia is the same as in other countries except for what it's missing — women.
The Swedish publication Metro has posted a comparison of the Saudi Arabian mailer and the Swedish version, showing that women present in the latter were missing from the former.
In one instance, a pajama-clad woman — shown standing at a bathroom sink along with a man, young boy and toddler nearby — was erased from the catalog distributed in the Arab nation, leaving just the three other people in the picture.
