It is a big win for women in Saudi Arabia after the government lifted the ban on women to travel abroad without the permission of a male guardian.

This means the women will now have the same rights as that of men as announced by the Saudi Arabia government on Friday.

The move follows a series of backlash against the government of the treatment of women in the country.
