Oct. 8, 2012 Zainab al Talib, left, assists legal consultant Tala al-Hejailan at the law offices of DLA Piper in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Hejailan has a law degree, but she cannot practice law in Saudi Arabia, which does not grant licenses to women. So, she practices as a legal consultant in an office that segregates women from men. But she's one of the lucky, highly educated Saudi women with a job in their intended field. Linda Davidson/The Washington Post Buy Photo
