Description

It is the only country in the world where women are banned from getting behind the wheel of a car, but not for much longer, nine months to be exact.King Salman is allowing women to legally drive for the first time from next June. The royal decree removes a cornerstone of Saudi conservatism. Some conservative voices are accusing the leadership of 'bending the verses of Sharia'.While rights activists are delighted that Saudi women are finally being allowed to do what's entirely normal everywhere else.But will the royal go-ahead accelerate existing tensions in the kingdom? And is it a major step towards gender equality in the male dominated society?Presenter: Sami ZeidanGuests: Eylem Atakav - Senior Lecturer, University of East Anglia. Yasemin Saib - Saudi activist.
