ACTIVISTS TARGET APPLE AND GOOGLE FOR INTRODUCING ‘MISOGYNISTIC’ APP

ANM News Desk: Apple and Google are facing criticism from human rights activists for hosting an app that allows men in Saudi Arabia to track and control women’s movements.

The app called “Absher” lets men give women permission to travel, and also get SMS when a woman uses her passport at the border.

For making the apps available on Google Play and Apple’s App Store, the US-based tech giants have been accused of facilitating misogyny and helping “enforce gender apartheid”.
