Saudi women driving cars

“Women driving cars” appeared at the top of the Google searches in Saudi Arabia yesterday.
Saudi electronic newspaper Al-Mowaten said: “Only a few hours left until Saudi women take off to drive their cars in the streets of the Kingdom after years of the ban, and embark on a new journey in the life of a woman in the Kingdom.”
“Sparing hundreds of thousands of families, especially low-income ones, from having to rely on foreign drivers,” the newspaper said.
The paper highlighted emergency cases: “Women being allowed to drive is a necessity more than a luxury. Women will rely on themselves when facing emergencies and difficult circumstances in which they will need to drive and act quickly, especially if a husband or other family member is suddenly stricken with an illness.”
