Politics: First Lady in Saudi Arabia

The President and the First Lady made a visit to Saudi Arabia to pay respects to the late King Abdullah and to meet Saudi Arabia’s new leader. During this trip, Michelle Obama has caught attention for not wearing a headscarf. Many on social media criticized her for not wearing a headscarf in a country where women are expected to cover their heads. Michelle Obama is not the first female foreign leader to not cover her head in this country, including Hilary Clinton and Angela Merkel.
