After centuries of oppression, women are finally rising above injustices. While some are campaigning for body positivity and breast education, others are just now experiencing more basic rights. Following the lift on the driving ban on women, Saudi Arabia continues to get in with the times. The country is now allowing women to enjoy sports stadiums with men, albeit in the family section.
These “family” sections are for women who are out on their own or who are accompanied by a male relative.
The renovations will reflect an enormous success, considering women are subject to seating arrangements even in restaurants and cafes. Family accommodation will take place in stadiums across Riyadh, Jiddah, and Dammam. Still, there is a long way to go for Saudi women.
Most women in Saudi Arabia cover their hair and face with a veil and all women are required to wear an abaya, a loose black dress, in public.
Progress in places like Saudi Arabia have been slow but steady. Hopefully, in the near future, differences between men and women will only be biological.
