(27 Sep 2017) Saudi Arabia's surprise decision to grant women the right to drive in the conservative kingdom marks a significant expansion in women's rights, according to one analyst. Graham Griffiths of the UAE-based Control Risks said it's a clear step in the direction of liberalising the culture. But activists said on Wednesday this is also only the first step in a long list of demands for equality.Saudi Arabia was the only country in the world to ban women from driving. The royal decree late on Tuesday comes into effect next summer, but it's nearly three decades after women began agitating for the right to drive.The decree indicated that women will not be allowed to drive immediately. A committee will be formed to look into how to implement the new order, which is slated to take effect in June 2018.You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/you...
