This undated 2013 photo shows students at the Princess Nora University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, which claims to be the largest women's-only campus in the world where females can walk around freely without the traditional Saudi black abaya and face veil. Within their female-only campus grounds, women at Saudi Arabia’s universities let loose, with trendy sneakers, colorful tops, a myriad of hairstyles. But in every student’s bag is the black abaya robe they must cover themselves with when they step out of the university gates. The kingdom has spent billions to improve women’s education, part of a broader drive to educate young Saudis for the workforce, but rights advocates say it will mean little as long as heavy restrictions on women remain.
