Women Can Finally Drive in Saudi Arabia

           Saudi Arabia is finally delivering driving license to women. It is the end of an era which imposed strict restrictions on women’s rights. Today, Saudi Arabia has officially started to authorize women to drive, following the prince’s programme, which is an attempt to modernize the country. Saudi Arabia was the only country worldwide forbidding women to drive. A first small step towards women’s empowerment, in a country where women’s freedom is extremely restricted by social stigma, mentality, and the law.
