Saudi Arabia: Panel of Scientists admits Women are Mammals, yet ‘Not Human’

Riyadh | In an unprecedented ruling, a panel of Saudi scientists has concluded that women are actually mammals, granting them the same rights as other mammal species such as camels, dromedaries and even goats.

The verdict, which fell just hours before the International Women’s Day, is considered “historic” by some experts and advocacy groups for women’s rights.

“It may seem too little, too late, but it is truly a milestone event for all women in the region,” explains Jane Austin, visibly excited.

“This is a great leap forward for women’s rights in Saudi Arabia”

“From now on, women will be considered as members of the mammal class, whereas before women shared the legal status of an object, similar to that of a home appliance,” she admits.


Jillian Birch, spokeswoman at Amnesty International, said she is optimistic about the future as women will no longer be considered as “soulless objects” but as fully fledged mammals

“Soulless objects”

The recent verdict could completely upset all laws currently enforced in Saudi Arabia believes Jillian Birch, a spokeswoman at Amnesty International.

“This verdict shows the incredible progress the women’s rights movement has made in the past 50 years,” she admitted in a press conference this morning. 

“Finally, women will no longer be simply considered as objects without souls, but as full-fledged mammals, with the same rights as other animals of their species such as camels and goats,” she said, visibly emotional.

“Women are still far from being considered 100% human, but their condition will improve drastically with this decision,” she firmly believes.

An unprecedented verdict

The verdict, which fell like a ton of bricks on the Saudi state, has clearly not found unanimous support amongst religious authorities and the political elite, concede experts.

“It could create significant turmoil in the current legal state of affairs and the judiciary system of Saudi Arabia,” says political analyst specialized in the Middle East, Anthony Bochstein.

“If women previously had the same rights as a chair or a table and were seen more as individual property, they now have an equivalent status to certain animal species, and thus must receive, at the very least, feeding, watering and be conferred a minimum of attention and respect, which was not the case previously,” he explains.

According to the expert panel that ruled on the matter, women are still devoid of a soul but have been shown to possess qualities common to the mammal species, which would explain their ability to procreate and breastfeed, as well as why they are equipped with seven cervical vertebrae, a characteristic unique to the mammal species.

  1. Yawn …. it is very important not to be judgmental. We must remember, all cultures are equal!!!

  2. Well? Why Not? Here in America we legislate that unborn babies are inconvenient growths that can be removed at leisure.

  3. what to comment???? comment on idiots statement??? what is the point?? if Woman and goat are same …. then saudi man and pig fit are 100% match…

  4. They must be very fearful of females. So before they thought of their mother as an appliance but now she equals goat. That would make the men be goats or junk. Or both. It must be fear for them to try to discount women’s importance. How sad.

  5. Exciting new proclamation by ignorant, backwards men in Saudi Arabia If they only designate women as mammal’s, what are they ? They come from women. And suddenly, after birth are exalted, superior, god like beings. Hmmmmm. Can you say delusional in Arabic ?
