Great News as women finally get a chance to hold public offices. The Guardian newspaper reports that women have been elected to the municipal council recently on Riyadh.

Will this pave way for more gender equality in such states?

Hope women will soon be allowed to be more independent, to drive, to work independently without male permission, to marry as per their own will, to stand against violence and rape without fear of prosecution….

It may seem like a long way to go ahead and we certainly hope to be able to report more positive news again and again.

Positively Yours
