Saudi Arabia: Should the world's last country to ban women drivers change its tune?

  • Women Should Drive

    Banning half of a population from driving is not only immoral, but it is also economically stupid. They should see the economic benefits of having women drive as opposed to seeing it as allowing women to do something they weren't allowed to do before. This could increase productivity and job growth as well as one step closer in women's rights.

  • Women drive as well as men.

    There is no evidence that women drive any differently than men. There are some men who are bad drivers, just like there are some women who are bad drivers. There is no reason not to allow women their independence. Allowing women to drive will allow them to contribute more to society in general. It is a positive development.

  • Yes, I think so.

    Saudi Arabia is "not convinced about women drivers" what they mean is that men are not convinced about women drivers. It's about time they advanced into the 20th century instead of living in the 6th. Mysoginistic control freaks. Last year campaigner Loujain al-Hathloul was jailed for 10 weeks after violating the ban by driving from the United Arab Emirates to the Saudi border.

  • I agree Saudi Arabia should allow women to drive.

    Saudi Arabia's current condition of prohibiting women from driving is very outdated. Other Muslim countries have changed their mindsets and allowed for women to drive as well. It is difficult to believe that in our modern times there are still socially crippling belief systems in place holding back progress in human rights.
