Recommended Posts

A Saudi prince has declared his support for women driving cars, arguing that females used to lead their own camels in the past. He also noted that women are the “bases of society” in Saudi Arabia and “hold a significant place in Islamic civilization.”

“The ban on women driving has been imposed on us, and women in the past used to lead their own camels. Women need to be empowered, because they represent more than half of the society and they are highly dependable,” Prince Faisal Bin Abdullah said in an interview with Riyadh-based Rotana Khalijia TV, as cited by Gulf News newspaper.
