RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA — Huge freaking news in Riyadh today. After cultural amendments by the government, women in the country are now freely able to travel; obtain passports, renew them, and everything in between.
This is a significant step for a repressive place that has historically been against the idea of a woman living freely.
The new amendments go into play for women over the age of 21.
