Saudis re­lax rules on women

The Citizen (KZN) - - NEWS - Dubai

– Saudi Ara­bia will al­low women into sports sta­di­ums as of next year, the king­dom’s lat­est step to­ward eas­ing rules on gen­der seg­re­ga­tion – but they will be seated in the so-called fam­ily sec­tion, an area sep­a­rate from the male-only crowd.

The General Sports Au­thor­ity de­scribed Sun­day’s de­ci­sion as one that will al­low “fam­i­lies” into the sta­di­ums, a term au­thor­i­ties use to re­fer to pub­lic spa­ces that ac­com­mo­date women. – AP
