What is life like for women and children in Jeddah?

Hi, I'm considering a move to Jeddah, and as many, I have questions regarding life @ Jeddah, considering that I would be traveling with my wife, and my 2 years old son. Sorry if this was answered already, but I couldn't find the right answer: 1) Are women able to go to a mall by themselves with a taxi? or she will only be able to go with me? 2) Does women always need to be with a man, like at a mall? 3) Will my wife be able to go to a mall with our son without me? like going to an amusement park? 4) Is there something my wife should know (other than having to wear abayas) about daily life at Jeddah? any restrictions to look or talk to man, like at stores or shopping centers? Thanks! AM
