Saudi Women: Between Segregation and Progress
An article in The Wall Street Journal on some of welcome changes affecting Saudi women. 58% of graduates of Saudi universities are women, but women make only 7% of people who work, mostly in education and medicine (to maintain segregation). Recently, they have been allowed to study law. It would be great if one day they can represent clients in court. It would be wonderful when the day after they are allowed to be judges. But I'm getting ahead of myself here. It's not like we're talking about a revolution.
