    Hi Suzanna - out sister site has just published this really great guide to living and working in Qatar:

    There are good section on Culture:
    and the rights of women:

    These will help answer your questions and put your concerns to rest.

    In a nutshell though, you should be absolutely fine to visit Qatar which is not nearly as puritanical and orthodox as many other Arab countries.

    Please let me know how it all goes!
