    1. In yesterday's press or was it 8 April 2017... were instructions to driving schools... To facilitate to accept women. In the next 30days. This reminds me of twelve years ago when office building had no toilet facilities for women. How times have changed. I heard that more than 50% of small business are owned by women in Saudi.

    2. Wow, that's a great piece of news, or rumor. There was a rumor going around that on April 3rd (now a week ago) that the announcement would be made that women will be able to drive. When there are numerous rumors going, it usually means something is happening. Let us hope! Thank you for commenting.

    3. Actually I just re-read your comment. Can you post a link to the press release you mentioned? I have found nothing in the news. Thank you!
