Seems that I'd be a "maam-sir" in Saudi too. Amused by this invitation to a workshop in Saudi where I'm addressed as "Mr. Jennifer..." There are project opportunities in Saudi but I would not be going. No thank you. It's hard enough sometimes being an affective female professional here in the UAE. In Saudi it's one-thousand times more difficult. In fact they just send invites to "Mr" whether it's obviously a woman or not. Kind of drives home the point: don't even think of coming if you are a woman. OK, I get it. Not coming. Only please take me off your mailing list 'cause it just irritates the heck out of me.
