    This is a good story and definitely news-worthy, however I do feel the assertion it is to do with the diversification of Saudi Arabia’s economy from Oil and Gas isn’t valid. It is very welcome and overdue but a cynic might say this was a deflection from other much needed challenges that the country faces.

      Hi Rob, I’m doing a follow-up analysis piece on why lifting the ban is more to do with diversifying the economy, than it is about women’s rights. It should be up tomorrow, but happy to discuss further.

      Thanks!

    Hi, the second paragraph of this story is excellent: “While there was never any formal law preventing women from driving, it was accepted that the practice was forbidden by religious edict. The kingdom was the only country in the world to forbid women drivers.” That explanation, so high in the story, is better than most of your competitors today.
