Females behind wheels

In an unexpected move, the Saudi Kingdom has lifted the world’s last remaining ban on female driving. Now, Saudi females can be seen behind the wheel, doing their daily routine as an independent person like visiting friends, dropping off kids at school and going to work. The move is being appreciated all over the world.
However, it will pave the way for women’s empowerment in an ultra-conservative state, there would be more participation of women in public dealing. But, there is still a large vacuum to be reformed by the Kingdom’s Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, he should do more for the modernisation of the Kingdom for the sake of true reforms. At last, it will be a wise step to release arrested women who campaigned for women’s right to drive. They should be allowed so that they could too witness the results of their continuous efforts and hard-earned move.
