Saudi Arabian women are heading to polling stations as both voters and candidates for the first time in the country’s history.

More than 5,000 men and around 980 women are standing as candidates for municipal council seats on Saturday. More than 130,000 women have registered to vote, compared with 1.35 million men.

I think this is great. This may be a small step for women but at least its a step in the right direction. I hope they keep this up and join the rest of the world in the 21st century.

Thoughts?
