By ALLAN TAWAI

 For the very first time in history, Saudi Arabian women have been allowed to enter the national stadium which is only meant for males in the country.

They were allowed inside the national stadium in Riyadh which is usually used for football matches for them to attend an event commemorating the anniversary of the founding of the kingdom.

Under the country’s strict adherence of Islamic law, women are not allowed to mix outside with men as most Saudi women are secluded.

However, women were allowed inside the Stadium last Saturday, January 6, but they were still dressed in the code guiding the laws of their land. In October 2017, Saudi Arabian Government is also said to have announced that women would be allowed to drive from June 2018.

An economic and social reform programme led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman aims to open up sheltered lifestyles. Saudi Arabia is one of the respected Islamic countries in the world that take the Sharia law serious. People from other parts of the world also gather in the country once in a year to perform the Holy Pilgrimage.
