Around four decades ago, American daily The Ames Tribune published a story entitled “She crossed cultural barriers in Saudi Arabia” to narrate the story of an American woman named Claudia Crawford who had to move to Riyadh with her husband.
The daily also published a photo of Crawford as she sat with antique sellers in Suk Al Zell in Riyadh. The photo was published on May 31, 1974.
The piece featured excerpts from Crawford’s dairies and explained that she moved to Riyadh after her husband was appointed as a bank manager.
In her dairies, Crawford said she was worried of moving into a place that imposes strict restraints on women, adding however that she was excited to know more about Islam and about Arabs’ culture and habits.
