About time too! Women in Saudi Arabia are among the worst treated females in the world.

I think losing so much revenue from oil's decline has led them to a reform in economics, and through that, a reform in social organisation. There are still clerics complaining that it will all lead to sin!

True, they don't have the same problems we do with drink, drugs, and crime, but where is the line between harming others and doing your own thing? And given that some practices do harm others, is making them illegal the best way of dealing with them? In any case, equality for women doesn't harm anyone!

Its not right. The Saudi marriage act says a motoring union is between a man and a car.
as specified in the Koran.
There are alternatives for women, -like taking a bus. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Buck, they wouldn't be allowed to take a bus, unless accompanied by a man!
