Another earth shattering decision a propos women in Saudi Arabia: it is to lift driving ban on women!! A ban that has been in place since 1932! I wonder was anyone even driving then?
"There has been a decision to move on this by the Royal Court because it is recognized that if girls have been in schools since the 1960s, they have a capability to function behind the wheel when they grow up," a government official said. "We will make the announcement soon."
Mr. government official: Could you please elaborate if Bush, by any chance and given that he was there just five days before, has anything to do with this sudden insight? Oh and by the way, does this mean that illeterate men in Saudi Arabia are banned from driving? I highly doubt it.
If you ask me, this whole thing sounds like a cheap PR stunt!
