    IFLAC congratulations the inclusion of women in Saudi Arabia’s municipal elections, as a GREAT landmark achievement

    This empowers Saudi Women to reduce gender inequality in the conservative Islamic kingdom.

    Saudi Arabians have voted 17 women into public office in municipal elections.

    It is the country’s first election where women could vote and run as candidates.

    Human Rights Watch (HRW) said women’s inclusion in the elections was a positive step toward greater political participation, but that Saudi Arabia continued “to discriminate against women through myriad laws, policies, and practices”.

    “The government should fix the problems that are making it hard for women to participate and build on this progress to create momentum for further women’s rights reforms,” Sarah Leah Whitson, HRW’s Middle East director, said.

    IFLAC agrees and adds that now that women can vote, as they are more than half the population of Saudi Arabia, they should all go to vote for WOMEN, so that they can achieve full emancipation and equal status and freedom.

      Great News for women they have worked hard and proved it using the Sharia Law and the example of the Prophet to get the right to vote.

      They also showed men they were wrong in preventing the women from voting as it was part of Islam in the days of the Prophet.

      They are using the same methodology to get the right to drive cars because the women rode camels in his lifetime and to rid themselves of the Burqah and Niqab well a woman doing hajj is not allowed to cover her face.

      Well done ladies
