Political Symbolism

When Saudi Arabia’s old and ailing King Salman decreed yesterday that women in the Kingdom are now allowed to get a car driving license, he might have had in mind that it won’t be happening anyway. Who can teach them driving a car as women have to be taught by women? Or do they expect husband or brothers to be present in the lessons?

It takes more to overcome bizarre gender segregation.
