Maybe you’ve heard that Saudi women will soon be permitted to drive and that the ladies can now go to the movies despite Saudi Arabia’s highest religious authority, publicly called commercial films a source of “depravity”.
Sports arenas have also opened to females but I fear for this lady who has posted a promotional video
After a ban of more than 35 years Saudi Arabia has opened the first public cinema lifting the ban as part of ambitious economic and social reforms pushed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who is trying to broaden the economy and lessen its dependence on oil. According to The Guardian last month alone, women were told they could join the military and the intelligence service. Driving schools will soon open for women who can legally take to the roads on their own in June.
