“[We are] so proud and happy. We thank everyone who supported us [in every way possible] even if just morally,” another graduate said.

“We acquired several skills… We acquired strength and self-confidence,” another cadet said as a family member attending the ceremony congratulated her and said there weren’t enough words to describe how proud he was of her.

Under the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 plan – introduced by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman – the country aims to provide greater opportunities for women and implement several initiatives that include increasing women’s participation in the workforce, expanding women’s access to leadership positions, and improving women’s access to education and training.

In 2019, for instance, Saudi Arabia announced that it would allow women in the Kingdom to serve in the armed forces.

Women can sign up to join the Saudi Arabian Army, Royal Saudi Air Defense, Royal Saudi Navy, Royal Saudi Strategic Missile Force, and Armed Forces Medical Services.
