About Saudi Arabia’s law for Women

In detail, Saudi Arabia follows strict rules and keeps single women and men separate in public places, events, restaurants and marriage functions. Besides, the rule says women can’t attain the events in stadiums and can’t drive vehicles.  However, last year, the law permitted women to drive cars. Mohamad bin Salman, the Prince, has faced a lot of criticism for such strict rules.

On the other sides, the Human Rights Associations also advised the authority to pull out the rapper and others from the event. Well, their motive is good. However, Saudi Arabia has seen a lot of rappers and singers performing in different events.

In the country, women still depend on men to get consent for different works. Besides, Homosexuality is also a criminal activity in the country. However, the Prince is now trying to reduce the restrictions to develop Saudi Arabia’s tourism industry.
