The Evolution of Women’s Rights in Saudi Arabia

In Post Production

Giving women the right to drive joins a number of other huge social and economic Vision2030 reforms which are transforming the way Saudis live and work.

The stranglehold the religious factions had on Saudi society had to be loosened if Saudi was ever to achieve success under Vision 2030. This is the story of how the once mighty religious police was cut down, allowing Saudi society to open. ​
