Saudi Arabia Allows Women to Watch Football Match at Stadium for First Time

  • The ultra-conservative Muslim country Saudi Arabia took unprecedented step towards liberalising its gender bias by allowing women football fans to watch the game at stadiums. On Friday, women fans were allowed to watch football match in a Jeddah city stadium. They were allowed to enter through family gates to be seated in family seating. Female ushers were also hired for greeting women fans and families. In a step towards modernizing the country, Saudi Arabia also opened its first car showroom that is dedicated for female customers. The refreshing step comes after women were allowed to drive cars.
