This study focuses on the problem of gender discrimination in the workplace. A gender-integrated workplace is a relatively new phenomenon in Saudi Arabia. Using a feminist theoretical lens, I conducted five in-depth qualitative interviews with Saudi Arabian women about the challenges they face when working in a gender-integrated environment. This research topic resonates in the field of communication studies by engaging with gender and organizational communication studies. The findings show the many challenges Saudi Arabian women face, how they manage their professional identities, and potential ways for communication to play a role in advancing women’s rights in the workplace. The goal of this research is to learn more about gender-integrated working environments in Saudi Arabia in the hopes of ending the professional and societal discrimination that too many women experience.
