The right to drive

Vocable (All English) - - À 360° -

Saudi Ara­bia’s King Sal­man has is­sued a de­cree al­low­ing women to drive. The Gulf king­dom was the only country in the world that banned women from driv­ing. Un­til now, only men were al­lowed li­cences and women who drove in pub­lic risked be­ing ar­rested and fined. Fol­low­ing the de­cree, women will no longer need per­mis­sion from a le­gal guardian to get a li­cence and will not need a guardian in the car when they drive. The royal or­der will be im­ple­mented by 24 June 2018.
