Saudi Arabia just made a huge leap towards women’s equality. It may seem like a small step to us Americans, but to the Saudi woman, it is a huge step forward. We should all praise Saudi Arabia for their historic decision here.

The fact that Trump is in the picture means absolutely nothing to do with SA’s choice here. Bad photo choice by The Hill folks (good story though).
Saudi Arabia's king issues order that legalizes women drivers.
Welcome to the 20th century, SA!
But seriously, this is good. ?

This is amazing news for everyone involved.
New rights are often framed as being given or granted. The truth is women in Saudi Arabia fought for this & won. https://t.co/X4yU8TQheM

The rulers might think they came up with this all on their own, but the Saudi women have been fighting for this for a long time. They just so happened to win this time. Congrats Saudi ladies.
I am actually incredibly proud of the brave activists in Saudi Arabia who have been fighting hard for women's rights there. It matters.

It takes a lot to be an activist in SA. It could very well be your life at stake. We commend these brave strong women for standing up for themselves.

All joking aside, this is a big step towards women’s equality in SA. What will the next step be?
Good on Saudi Arabia for recognizing women's rights to drive. I hope this is just the beginning of social & moral evolution for them!

This is a big day in international women’s equality. Every women should encourage our fellow Saudi sisters that will finally be able to drive. Saudi Arabia may not know it yet, but this is just the first step in many to come for Saudi women’s equality. Keep fighting on Saudi ladies. We are standing behind you.
