Saudi Arabia is lifting its ban on women drivers. The country’s leader, King Salman, ordered the change in a decree. State media said the decree ordered the creation of a group of ministers. In Saudi Arabia, women are legally required to get approval from a male guardian for legal decisions. These can include education, employment, marriage, travel and medical treatment. But the prince said women will not need approval from their guardians to get a driver’s license and will be able to drive alone in the car. They will have permission to drive anywhere in the kingdom, including the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina.
