At first I was excited because the King decided to allow women to vote! How 21st century of him. They can even run for office. And even join the Shura council. Of course, this doesn't start until 2015, so there's plenty of time to backtrack on it.
So first I'm excited, then disappointed. Because a woman has been sentenced to 10 lashes with a whip, for breaking the law - the driving law! I guess if a woman can drive on her own, then it's harder to keep an eye on her. And we all know that if you don't keep an eye on a woman, she'll get into all sorts of trouble (yes, this is sarcasm).
