Did you know you can’t work in a Saudi Arabian women’s only store if you’re a man? And if you’re a woman, chances are you won’t be allowed to work at night in Madagascar. That makes it seem hard to attract recruiters and workers alike!

Is this unfair? No. Usually, the laws are designed to protect citizens, such as China’s laws prohibiting women from doing physically demanding work. Filipino’s also have their own set of unwritten rules when it comes to work, but not as much as putting them into law.
