Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman is really showing the game. Women have the right to drive, soccer field to play and then the opportunity to join the army directly! Years ago Saudi women thought of these rights as the name of the dream.
Saudi King Salman removed his nephew Mohammad bin Nayef in June and succeeded his son Muhammad bin Salman as the successor to the throne. Since then, the air of change has started in the Saudi Arabia known as the 'Conservative' country. In the name of economic reforms, reducing reliance on oil-based economy in the name of economic reform, giving importance to tourism and industrialization, corruption control, aggressive foreign policy and women's rights are being brought about a revolutionary step by step, whose main credit is being given to the young crown prince Muhammad bin Salman. Although the King Salman is on the throne, the prince is playing the main role in many ways.
Saudi women, who are step by step, are now going to join the country's Saudi army. This recruitment has already begun. Women are applying in it. At present they will be recruited only for women 'soldiers' in Mecca, Medina, Riyadh and Al-Qasim provinces. Among the 12 qualifications mentioned in the recruitment notice, the applicant must be a Saudi citizen, in the age of 25 to 35 years, the high school diploma must be. And in the province where you want to work, the applicant and his guardian husband, father, brother or child must have a place to live.
Saudi women get the right to compete in franchise and elections just three years ago. After that, women have got the right to drive in the last September, following various ups and downs. It is expected to be officially implemented in June this year. In September, women were given the right to issue fatwas. At the same time, students of college-going to Saudi Arabia were allowed to use mobile phones. Now Saudi women participate in decision-making as members of the Shoura Council and in public activities in general at official and unofficial levels. Saudi women currently hold 20 percent seats on the 150-member Shoura Council, which advises the government on political, economic, social, defense and security issues. And last month, for the first time, they were given the right to watch football matches on the field. Considering these things, it is possible to get the right to join women in the Saudi army quickly.
Finally Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has appointed Tamader bin Youssef Al-Rammah as deputy minister of labor and social development affairs ministry. She is the First Saudi woman who appointed as a deputy minister of Saudi Arabia history.
The list of Saudi women stuck in the list to get this right, but is still long. Saudi women must also get the permission of their male guardian, which is known as 'guardianship' in the country, to pass a passport, travel abroad, open a bank account, start a business, even after the completion of any kind of surgery. Human rights activists say that due to this guardianship, Saudi women are being subjected to widespread discrimination. The government is not implementing this system if it is asked to give it up. Saudi women rights activists are becoming vocal about this issue. Manal Al Sharif, the pioneer of the movement to drive the Saudi women's rights, has recently tweeted against the ongoing 'guardianship'. 'I am my guardian on the way forward'.
But 32-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will tell when he will bring reforms on these issues. For nearly nine decades, none of the current dynasties in Saudi Arabia have been thinking about these issues. Not only women rights, but they also did not go on the path of reform. Because of this, no one wanted to go against the 'conservative society' of the country. There, Muhammad bin Salman is giving a lot of changes in his own way. It is said that the old model of Saudi Arabia is the country driven by the oil-based economy and the advice of religious leaders. Then the current Crown Prince broke it and tried to introduce a new model. The model of nationalism and economic development of the model. He has published a master plan titled 'Vision 2030'. However, the success of this master plan depends on the different calculations.
