On Sept. 26 Saudi Arabia issued a royal decree that will allow its women to drive. First, an organized committee will present recommendations over the next 30 days and then the government will be given until June 2018 to implement the final decree. According to the New York Times, Prince Khalid bin Salman, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.S., says his society is ready for the change.

Numerous arguments against female drivers and explanations for the ban have been provided by Saudi officials and clerics. Some of these include that it would lead to promiscuity, men wouldn’t know how to drive with women next to them and driving harms a woman’s ovaries, according to the New York Times.

About the Writer
Haley Miller, News Editor

Hello! I’m Haley Miller, a junior at SHS. Last year, I was a reporter for The Journal, and I’m super excited to be back as News Editor. While working on The Journal is very time-consuming, I participate in other activities, including theater and Cardinal Cadre. I also intern for The Southsider Voice, a local newspaper. As you may have guessed, writing is an important part of my life, and I dedicate a lot of time and energy into making mine great. As a result, my newspaper work usually takes precedence over homework in other classes. It’s always worth it.

I hope the effort we put into this publication shows. Happy reading!
