Related departments have 30 days to give comments. The statement means that the only country that had banned women from driving will see women sitting behind wheel starting June, 2018, which is a big leap to the goal of equal rights.Saudi Arabia is seeing positive changes pushed by the rapid development of this era. In 2011, women were granted the right to vote and be voted in local elections. In 2014, 30 women were elected to the Consultative Assembly. Women were invited to attend the National Day celebration for the first time last week. The royal family has been devoted to contributing to the equality of men and women in the country. “The decision was not just a major social change but part of the country’s economic reforms,” said Prince Khaled bin Salman, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States.The most essential element behind the goal of equality of men and women is the reformation of concept. After the ban was removed, some women immediately got on the road for test driving. Some driving schools said they received many phone calls from women. In contrast, some conservative men still think that driving is a crime for women and urged people with “morality” to protest against the change. In this case, changing the old concept and building a safe, tolerate, and sound environment for women are more important than the policy change itself.var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Hongyu, Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9275789;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingEgypts Sisi ratifies Red Sea islands handover to Saudi ArabiaChina congratulates Saudi Arabias new crown princeChina, Saudi Arabia agree to deepen cooperationChina, Saudi Arabia hold first joint anti-terrorism drillChina willing to advance military relations with Saudi Arabia: Defense MinisterOne of worlds largest military drills launched in Saudi ArabiaChina-Saudi Arabia power plant to supply Dubai world expoIn pictures: President Xis visit to Saudi ArabiaChina, Saudi Arabia agree to set up high-level committee to steer cooperationChinese president discusses trade, energy cooperation with GCC chiefWe RecommendPitaya flower: blooms for one night, yields delicious fruit
