Saudi 'may' let women drive

Saudi 'may' let women drive

Is this part of why the middle east is so far behind the west? It seems to me that historically the region has been known for great advances in knowledge. However it seems to me they are not just restricting half the population but actively preventing their contribution

A bit ironic, eh, that their church is now doing the same.

Oh, and I think we should all take a look at this policy.
We could cut down on a lot of traffic and accidents if we didn't allow women to drive.
