Saudi women can finally travel abroad alone

Aug 02, 2019 13:08 IST

In a landmark move, women in Saudi Arabia will finally be allowed to hold a passport and travel out of the country without needing the consent of a male guardian. The end of this restriction is a historic move towards ending the long-standing male guardianship system imposed over women in the kingdom. When implemented, the reform will enable all women over the age of 21 to apply for a passport without authorisation.
