Saudi women will not only drive

From Paris - Fadwa El shaibani



In addition to the car, starting in June, Saudi women will be able to drive motorcycles and trucks.


The French newspaper L’express reported in this context that the life of Saudi women will change significantly in 2018.


This comes after the Kingdom announced that women in Saudi Arabia will be able to drive motorcycles and trucks as well as cars by June.


An announcement comes nearly three months after the lifting of the ban on women's leadership, which is expected to have a major impact on the Saudi economy, which has been heavily affected since mid-2014 due to low oil revenues.


This move is expected to reduce the high unemployment rate among women because of their total dependence on male drivers.


The report shows that these reforms and steps show the strong imprint of the young Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman, who is the architect of a broad program of economic and social reforms in the Kingdom, "2030 Vision".


The vision particularly aims to increase the participation of women in the labor force to 30% in 2030, compared with 22% currently.
