Essay Writing on "The Freedom Enjoyed by Women in Saudi Arabia"

Question:
What do people usually ask about when they talk about women in Saudi Arabia? I have heard a lot of
questions here in the States or in some countries I have visited that why women are prohibited to
drive in Saudi Arabia. I really was not sure in the beginning, why? I thought it is a religious concept;
however, after I asked some older people like my father and some of my teachers in Saudi Arabia
about that, I realized that it is not a religious issue. Nowadays, a woman driving is one of the biggest
issues in Saudi Arabia. The country divided to three groups and each has his unique knowledge and
opinion and because of that the government has interfered in the topic to see what the best for the
country is.

The first group which is against the topic is the religious and the elderly people. Religious people say
that a lot of problem may occur because Saudis did use to see women driving and we should avoid the
issue before it starts. They also, say that a lot of men who did not use to see women driving may act
badly with that. According to Dr. Yamani, a famous academic writer in Saudi Arabia, that women
driving is not a religious issue and it does not have a relationship with the religion of Islam. Therefore,
he asked religious people to support any good idea for the country and its people.

For some elderly people in Saudi Arabia, who are also against the topic, say in the media that they are
not against because of the women but because of the country to be away of any issue. Elderly people
say that they have enough experience in life which let them know what the right is and what is not.
They say that every time a new thing comes to the country, a problem starts for few months until
people get used to it and until they know the advantages and disadvantages in it. They give an
example of what happened in the beginning of the 1900s when the Satellites invaded the country and
how a lot of people disagreed to have them at homes because it included some bad channels which
may affect young and youth people. This issue stayed for almost couple years until people knew what

is good and the bad for them and for their people. According to Mr. Afan Halawani, the vice president
of retirement association in Jeddah, Saudi Arabai, that women in Saudi Arabia for sure are going to
drive; therefore, people should think about the consequences before they approve the subject.

On the other side there is a group of people who usually give good evidence when they talk about
issues in Saudi Arabia. Those are the liberal people. In the case of women driving in Saudi Arabia
liberal people talked a lot in media to convince the government to approve it and make it legal. The
ex-minister of information and the leader of the liberal group in Saudi, Dr. Mohammed Abdo said that
women should drive as soon as possible because that is much better than ridding the car with a driver
who considers a stranger. Dr. Abdo said that the government should think intelligently with issue and
they should keep in mind that letting women drive in Saudi Arabia is the safer for women because we
heard a lot of stories about drivers who raped or tried to rape women while they are alone with them.

Another active member group in the liberal group is Dr. Alawaji who is a famous poem in Saudi
Arabia. Dr. Alawaji said in an interview that he is surprised to hear that some people say women
driving may affect badly on the country. He said that more than 73% of Saudis spend their vacations
out said the country and as is well-known all countries allowed women to drive. Therefore, Saudis
used to see women driving around the world and for sure it is going to be a good effect instead of the
bad effect some think about. In addition, Dr. Alawaji added that his wife and daughters are good
drivers and they used to drive whenever they go outside the country.

After a lot of long discussion about women driving in Saudi Arabia, king Abdullah interfered and gave
a speech about that. He mentioned his point of view that he is a part of the country and whatever is
best for the country he will go with it. He sent the case to the Saudi Social Council to study the case
and give the final decision in that. The case has been in SSC for more than a year with no response or
final decision till now because some members in the SSC disagree and some do. So it is still a
controversial issue even in the office of responsibility. Nowadays, or particularly in the last three

weeks nothing in media in Saudi Arabia about women driving may because media is waiting for the
final decision or may be because the media got frustrated and tired of an issue with no respond.

Solution:


SAUDI ARABIA ----- WOMEN DRIVING AUTOMOBILES

What are the ‘most frequently asked questions’ pertaining to the women in Saudi Arabia? I have faced
such questions in the United States and other countries I have travelled. The most frequent question
is why women are prohibited to drive in Saudi Arabia. Initially, I was also hesitant to answer this; I
thought that this might be related to religious concepts. I became curious about this issue and
decided to gather some more details to come out with clear ideas. For a beginning, I asked some older
people like my father and some of my teachers in Saudi Arabia about this issue. I realized that this
issue did not pertain to religious aspect.

Nowadays, ‘woman driving automobiles’ is one of the biggest issues in Saudi Arabia. On this topic, the
country might be divided into three groups; each group has a unique knowledge and opinion. As can
be expected, the three groups have three different opinions and three different approaches to the
issue. Because of this, the government of Saudi Arabia has decided to tackle this issue to find an
amicable solution in the best mutual interests of its people.

The first group comprises mainly of the elders or old-aged people who remain religiously deeply
rooted; they do not approve driving by women. This group of people, having the strongest faith in
their religion, have already witnessed some women driving; they totally disapprove it as they foresee
a number of problems arising out of allowing women to drive. This group is very apprehensive that
this issue should be closed once for all and women driving automobiles is simply not permitted. They
are also apprehensive some members of the male community against this issue will react in a very

violent manner causing problems on the ethical and social fronts. According to Dr. Yamani, a famous
academic writer in Saudi Arabia, that women driving is not a religious issue and it does not have any
pertinence with the religion of Islam. Hence, Dr. Yamani has requested the elder and religious people
to support any good idea which benefits the country and its people.

Some elderly people in Saudi Arabia are also against the topic, assure that they are against it not
because of the women; they are against it because of the deep-rooted cultura
