saudi women perpetual children

Human Rights Watch has a report out on Saudi women and their role in society, which is aggressively restricted by laws preventing them from making decisions for themselves or their children. The report is titled "Perpetual Minors".

I haven't yet read the report but I am inclined to think that titling it something like "Perpetual Minors" is more insulting to the women than it is to anyone else. I am sure it makes good copy in New York, but ... ouch.
