Oh yes, this might surprise you and some of you might even find it ridiculous but this is actually a fact! Women in Saudi Arabia are not allowed to go out-out or travel anywhere in the world without having the company of a male relative or a husband or what they call it there a ‘’ Mahram’’.

This also means that women in Saudi Arabia are not allowed to do anything in their lives without the approval and permission of the Mahram, this also includes travel, marriage, and even, education!

What’s more surprising is that the majority of women really enjoy the male supremacy and have no riots against this! Of course, there are some women who are quite rebellious and refuse these restrictions but they find it hard to speak out and change the miserable reality of their society!

They don’t have the right to get a driving license unless their guardian expressed his approval!

Unfortunately, women in Saudi Arabia weren’t allowed to get their driving license or drive due to the country’s Islamic rules. Thankfully, this is no longer the case today as the Saudi Arabia Royal Government has finally legitimated the act and allowed women to drive cars.

However, this act is still depending on the woman’s guardian permission. Let’s say, even if the royal government allowed women to drive, they still can’t do so unless they receive a permission from their guardian.
