Women In Saudi Arabia Celebrate Newly-Granted Right To Drive

Women in Saudi Arabia are hitting the streets to drive for the very first time after a decades-long ban on female drivers in the country. 

So at midnight on June 24th, they did just that. The lifting on the ban was announced last September. There was so much joy and pride at this new movement. 

As the women in the country went out to drive and celebrate, Saudi traffic police ganded out chocolate and flowers. 

Check out these fabulous photos:

Women across Saudi Arabia posted videos of themselves behind the wheel, decorated with custom Snapchat filters (ARODABLE) which they created to commemorate the historic moment. This is a huge moment in World History, so take a moment to celebrate with the women of this nation!
