"Fucked up country only slightly less fucked up now"
Yay Saudi Arabia is now only decades behind the times instead of centuries...
Even slow steps are steps.
Maybe it won't be in my lifetime, but I'm sure one day Saudi Arabia, the gulf states near it, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, etc etc will become truly progressive countries. But for now, I'll just settle for planting a tree.
Thank goodness, well done with a very difficult political decision.
Boy, Allah has been changing his mind on all kinds of things in SA. Maybe they've finally realized that pissing on half your population isn't exactly a good thing as long term on oil is down.
As much as I hate Saudi Arabia (laws/culture not people), you have to give credit when its due. They have made some amazing strides for the better in the last year alone
As glad as I am that they seem to be moving forward, I am super bummed out that women in that culture have had to endure this (and worse) up until this day.
I thought women had right to divorce their husband even in Islam
