Women finally able to drive in Saudi Arabia

By Faiming_low on 28 Sep 2017

Attached Image In 10 month's time, Women in Saudi Arabia will finally be able to drive after women in the country have campaigned for the right to drive for decades.

According to The New York Times, the announcement by the national leaders for the change in law was broadcasted during a live, state television event on Tuesday and at a media event in Washington.

It is said that the change will reverse the kingdom’s poor reputation, improve public relations and provide a boost to the economy. Many billions of dollars have been drained from the country’s economy because of the money women are forced to spend on foreign drivers.

Prince Khalid bin Salman said during the media conference in Washington, that women would be able to acquire a license without seeking the permission of a male "guardian" who is usually a father, a husband or even a son. Currently, women are not allowed to travel abroad, work or undergo certain medical procedures without the consent of their male "guardian."

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
