[双语新闻]沙特妇女将飞蓝天 勇敢挑战宗教束缚
Challenging religious conservatives, Saudi Woman Takes to the Sky

摘要:
  在妇女开车都要被禁止的沙特阿拉伯,一名妇女却勇敢地挑战宗教约束,即将成为第一名女飞行员。
  A Saudi woman is set to challenge religious conservatives by becoming the first female pilot in a country where women are not even allowed to drive.
 

  据路透社11月24日报道,这名“第一个吃螃蟹”的女子名叫哈娜蒂·辛蒂,她在沙特的邻邦约旦获得了飞行执照。她与约旦王子阿瓦理·本·塔拉尔的私人航空公司签署了合同,即将成为一名女飞行员。塔拉尔王子在一份声明中表示:“雇用辛蒂是解决妇女就业的一个重大进展,在促进沙特妇女参与社会活动等各方面都很有意义。”

  辛蒂将于明年年中完成训练任务,然后开始为塔拉尔王子的航空公司工作。她的举动对于极其保守的沙特宗教势力是一个极大的挑战。按照沙特有关规定,沙特妇女在没有其男伴陪同的情况下不可开车,不可与其他异交往或是在国内外旅行。此外,沙特妇女还必须用黑袍从头到脚裹得严严实实才能外出。(程庆华)

  A Saudi woman is set to challenge religious conservatives by becoming the first female pilot in a country where women are not even allowed to drive.

  Hanadi Hindi, who trained for a pilot's license in neighboring Jordan, has signed a contract with billionaire prince Alwaleed bin Talal's private airline, the prince said.

  "Recruiting Captain Hindi as a pilot ... is a major step in the employment of women and in their more active participation in Saudi society," Prince Alwaleed said in a statement.

  Hindi is due to start work by the middle of next year, after completing her training, in a move which directly challenges Saudi Arabia's ultra-conservative religious authorities.

  Women in Saudi Arabia are prohibited from driving, mixing with men and traveling inside or outside the country without a male escort. They are obliged to cover from head to toe in an abaya, a concealing black cloak.
