Saudi women rebelling!!!”, “ Saudi women being treated as second-class citizens for they are being banned from driving”, “Saudi female Manal Al-Sharif arrested for driving by the conservative Saudi government”….. These are the results that flashed through my computer screen when I punched “Saudi Women Driving” or “Women Driving in Saudi”.
Since recently, (some) women are allowed to drive, but I actually wanted to know the whole truth behind the issue of Saudi women and driving and see for myself what the hue and cry is all about!!!
Honestly speaking I know many Saudi females who do drive their cars uninterrupted in Saudi; but they are being subjected to drive only in restricted compound type zones. But do you think it’s just, I mean come on, driving is no more a hobby but a necessity, especially in these days of disappearing Saudi journalists…
Moreover, the problem is just piling up with the increasing growth of professional Saudi females. There is an emergence of females’ participation in various professional sectors like banks, academics, medical, IT and so forth.
No longer are the beautiful Saudi females considered as the dainty decked up dolls with only family and home in their agenda but now they are establishing themselves in the professional sectors and are doing really good there.
