Women in Saudi Arabia - level 3

Women in Saudi Arabia - level 3

29-09-2011 18:00

Women in Saudi Arabia will be given the right to vote and be members of the parliament in the future. King Adbullah said it on September 25, 2011.

Saudi women have been lobbying for political rights since 2007.  Women in England got the right to vote in 1928. Women in Kuwait got the same right in 2005. The first lady in the parliament in Kuwait was 4 years later in 2009.

Saudi women still don’t have the right to meet in larger groups in public and they cannot drive a car. Saudi women have to take a taxi or ask another male member of the family if they want to travel around.  But with some Arabic men already supporting the idea of women driving, it can also change soon.
