HRFS Welcomes The Corrective Measures For Saudi Women
- HRFS Welcomes The Corrective Measures For Saudi Women
Human Rights First Society received positively the corrective measures announced by The Custodian of The Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz that allows Saudi women to vote and run for Municipal Counsels in the Kingdom and that Saudi women will be members in the next Shura Counsel.
We welcome and applaud these steps which are in the right direction but call on King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz to follow these steps with abolishing the male guardianship from the Saudi society.
Women have full right to their legal identity without which all corrective measures could be rendered meaningless.
