Women will be allowed to legally drive in Saudi Arabia in June. Thousands of women are signing up for their first driving lessons to prepare. One student said, “When I heard about it, I was just shocked. I was so excited." Now, Saudi women can get to jobs more easily without relying on anyone but themselves. Driving opens the door to nearly unparalleled mobility and independence. Saudi women still need to get permission from a man to travel anywhere. The situation still isn’t ideal, but this is a great start.
