CAR NEWS: Women will now be allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia

Long criticized for its treatment of women, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia announced Tuesday that it would let women drive starting in June 2018.

The news came through the state news agency, but very little additional information was provided.

Ultra-conservative country in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia was the only place in the world where women were not allowed to drive. Despite the good news, there is still a long way to go before the Saudi women can enjoy the same benefits as men in their country, especially when it comes to the labor market and the law.
