Saudi Arabia decided to postpone the review of their decision to review the reform of women’s rights until after the liberation of Palestine, the release of all Palestinian prisoners, the recognition of Palestine as a member of the United Nations, and the establishment of Palestinian embassies in every country of the world.
The Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs urged the women of his country to wait, saying patience is also a form of action and that the government is in the process of making a schedule to gradually grant women their rights. Most recently, it is heading an initiative to let women drive remote controlled cars as a gateway to drive big cars in the presence of minimum two guardians and a member of the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue in the future.
Experts characterized the step as unprecedented in the history of Saudi Arabia. They noted that this marks the first time the government has accepted the combination of the words ‘rights’ and ‘women’, one that has previously reserved for the royal family and western workers in Saudi oil companies.
