Women’s Rights: Are women allowed to travel independently?

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

As of August 2, 2019 Saudi women over the age of 21 will be permitted to apply to travel outside the Kingdom independently. Yet, this change may not be welcomed by all its citizens. In 2010-11, Arab Barometer found that roughly 4-in-10 citizens across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) thought that a woman should be able to travel abroad independently. At the time, perceptions in Saudi were just below the region average with 37 percent saying it should be permissible for a woman to travel alone.
