WEB Notes: This may not seen like a bit deal to you, but I guarantee you it is. We are seeing Saudi Arabia, a radical Muslim nation making strides to become more like the rest of the world. “Becoming more like the rest of the world”…
It seems these days more and more nations are becoming more like the rest of the world. Moving their nation to be more in tune with globalism. Just ask North Korea’s Kim Jung Un.
Saudi women celebrated taking the wheel for the first time in decades Sunday as the kingdom overturned the world’s only ban on female motorists, a historic reform expected to usher in a new era of social mobility.
The much-trumpeted move is part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s plan to modernise the conservative petrostate — but it has been dented by the jailing of female activists who long opposed the driving ban.
Women in Riyadh and other cities began zipping around streets bathed in amber light soon after the ban was lifted at midnight, with some blasting music from behind the wheel.
