Saudi Arabia: Give women equal access to driving - Equality Now

Give Saudi women equal access to driving

Women in Saudi Arabia have been campaigning for their right to drive for many years.

Driving licenses have been issued already, and on June 24th women in Saudi Arabia will be allowed to drive.

But changing the law is only half the story.

Currently women can expect to pay six times more than men for driving lessons, paying 3000 SAR compared to around 500 SAR for men.

There are also currently only limited places across the country where they women will be able to learn to drive. 

Call on Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman to keep his word and make sure that Saudi women will have equal access to driving.
