Melania Trump's decision not to wear a headscarf upon arrival in the Middle East is drawing attention on social media. Though, her decision is consistent with custom for female foreign dignitaries visiting Saudi Arabia. Earlier this year, British Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel also shunned head coverings during visits, showing how common it is for high-level female visitors to skip wearing a headscarf or an abaya, the loose-fitting black robe worn by Saudi women.
