Brief critique.Edit

Women rights in Saudi Arabia is poor, women have to ask their husband to go outside of the house, event though in emergency situations women can not go hospitals unless their family allow. As I met a female friend in Saudi, she says that I can not get a Taxi driver to get me home, because all drivers are male and she has to wait for her brother to pick her up from school. This is also a matter of fair, women are forbidden from driving and that cause a poor community service as well as limitation of women rights in Saudi Arabia.Mohammed ALrajhi (talk) 02:54, 11 December 2017 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mohammed ALrajhi (talkcontribs) 04:30, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

TODO: Switch to absolute time instead of relative timeEdit

As stated in WP:RELTIME, "Absolute specifications of time are preferred to relative constructions using recently, currently, and so on, because the latter may go out of date.". This is a huge article and much of it needs to be switched to absolute time so that the content will remain valid no matter if it's frequently edited or not. Outdated information that the reader immediately realises is outdated is better than outdated (and now wrong) information stated to be true "now". See WP:RELTIME for more discussion and wording suggestions. Boud (talk) 00:31, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Editing article to include women drivingEdit

Women being allowed to drive has been written into the article, but there are still many areas which state that women are not allowed to drive. For instance, under the "Employment" subheading of "Economic rights," the article states:

A woman's work should not lead to her traveling without a close male relative—which presents considerable problems as women are not allowed to drive motor vehicles and there is little or no public transportation in the Kingdom.

The article must be combed through to look for other instances like this. I would do it myself, but I feel that it should be done by someone who is more well-versed on the topic. - Hemarcello (talk) 20:44, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

PBS sourceEdit

I've restored the PBS sourced statement and removed the reliability tag. The source is reliable and contains the information it's claimed to contain. Other quotes do not disprove the existence of this quote, and the quote isn't saying he was great and awesome, just that there weren't codified legal rights before that. –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 18:04, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Perhaps we should attribute the claim. However, just by looking at the page, I can't immediately see who writes it. —PaleoNeonate – 10:10, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
