Saudi Women Undergo Sex Change
In Riyadh, Saudi Arabia which is a male-dominated Muslim society, five women undergo sex reversal .

Women are treated badly and they are expected to fully cover themselves in public and ban them from driving or going out unaccompanied by a male relative.

Hence five Saudi women took a sex change operation.

The main reason is that they developed a psychologic complex.

Al Watan newspaper quoted psychology expert Mohamed Abdelmawjoud saying that the sex reversal operation took place over a year's period.

The report also said that the Saudi Authorities did not interfere in any of the operations nor bothered anybody.

An interior ministry official said that such cases are taken care off by the religious authorities, and the psychologists.

But a senior cleric said that a legal case has to be filed issuing laws against sex change operations.
