Religious Fundamentalism Watch: A Thaw In Saudi Arabia?

4020

From the Guardian:

“A billionaire Saudi prince has called for an “urgent” end to his country’s ban on women driving. “Stop the debate: Time for women to drive,” Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said on his official Twitter account.

Alwaleed is an unusually outspoken member of the Saudi royal family who holds no political posts but chairs Kingdom Holding Co, whose interests include US banking giant Citigroup and the Euro Disney theme park.”
