In a First, Saudi Arabia Issues Decree Allowing Women to Drive

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has issued a decree allowing women to drive for the first time. The order will be implemented by June 2018. The royal decree will implement the provisions of traffic regulations, including the issuance of driving licences for men and women alike.

Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world to forbid women from driving. Saudi women remain largely under the whim of male relatives due to guardianship laws.
