Arab Dialogue

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia announced his intention to give women the right to vote and run in future municipal elections. Driving a car remains illegal for women in Saudi Arabia. Despite some progress, the voice of women still has a different weight from that of men throughout the Arab World. The cartoon was republished by Radio Netherlands Worldwide and by Indian Express.

Please correct the caption which says "Women in Saudi Arabia Despite now have the right to vote." Women in Saudi *don't* have a right to vote. The only thing the king did was give a 'future promise' for which *considerations* will begin in 2014. Given his age/health and the 'conservative politics' his new crown prince plays, it is highly unlikely any real progress will take place in this regard when we reach the year 2014. This is similar to his famous 2005 Barbra Walters interview for which he was hailed left, right & center about how 'women *will* drive.' Women are getting arrested instead.

I'm a Muslim, and let me tell you, that whole drving thing is just way out there. I dont know why that law is still in place. The reason they put it up in the first place is so there's no chance for women to cheat or something of that nature. But I'm saying, when you've got a woman being driven around by a male chauffeur who's with her more than her husband, or a woman just driving herself around like me, what's more likely to end in adultery? What it comes down to is, I believe Islam is a perfect religion, but Muslims are not all perfect followers.

Exactly! many women will vote what their men prefer and perhaps many men would like to marry even more women! Despite of that, this is a good first step. A beautiful drawing!
