parks don't open till 4 pm so the garderners can work during the morning without any female visitors to stare at...
next thing the busses that are used by the labourers will be blacked out to prevent them from looking outside...

Where do you start??? Since when does the morning stop at 4pm? so its actually closed all morning, midday and early afternoon. I do actually think this is one of the most ridiculous things I've heard! What about the men that leer at you everywhere else? Or how about they warn their gardeners they are there to do a job not letch over women?

Perhaps they could employ female gardeners, or why not put all women in Sharjah and all men in Dubai and then they will never have to be in contact with each other ever ever ever- actually why not just send all women to Venus and all men to Mars and just be done with it - ffs

In the GN comments section, this little gem.
It seems that the gardeners are the ones causing the problem, so why should the cities residents suffer for it? If the gardeners can't be educated to act in an appropriate manner than perhaps they should be fired.

Sure you can instruct them not to stare but how exactly do you implement such a law without invariably creating a situation ripe for abuse and mistake. Unless you got CCTVs all over the park.

It would just come down to he said she said and the he will always lose out even if the she is mistaken.

Then you'd just have a bunch of blokes sitting in an air-conditioned office using the CCTV to watch the women in the park. Unless they blind every straight bloke in Sharjah they'll never solve this 'problem'.

Yes but then it will be Local eyes not Asian eyes, so that would be ok with the authorities.
