Saudi women are entering a new era of public participation. Municipal elections will be held across the country in December this year. Registration for voting has begun and the government awareness campaign to support the participation of women is gaining momentum. The government should be commended for its full support and its nationwide campaign to ensure the participation of women in the upcoming municipal elections.
Finally the time has come for Saudi women to be part of the political process. As elected representatives they can now have a say in shaping public policy.Samar Fatany
A golden opportunity
This development will usher in an era of moderation and an end to extremism and discrimination against women in our own society.Samar Fatany
