Saudi Arabia Sheds an Ignoble Distinction
Yamanyoon- 28 Sep 2017
Saudi Arabia’s decision to allow women to drive is a bid to divert the world’s attention from the country’s other human rights abuses and its war in neighboring Yemen. There might well be reason to be cautious about how the change will be implemented. And there is no question that Saudi women continue to suffer other restrictions in this conservative religious kingdom. None of those caveats, though, should detract from the significance of a decision that frees women from an obstacle in their daily lives.
