How is social life in Qatar?
There is a very high ratio of men to women in Qatar society; men outnumber women by more than three to one. This is primarily due to the number of expatriate males. Gender imbalance is a challenge to Qatari society because it perpetuates gender culture and, subsequently, unequal gender rights between men and women.

Can you wear jeans in Qatar?
You can get away with wearing typical summer clothes, but keep in mind that the temperature can drop quite a lot during the colder nights. Make use of your jeans (leave the skinnies at home and opt for bootleg instead) and embrace wearing other kinds of trousers–the looser, the better.
