WATCH Saudi Crown Prince Hails Women’s Rights!
When asked what Saudi Arabia was like before 1979, the crown prince Mohammed bin Salman painted a picture of a “very normal life like the rest of the Gulf countries. Women were driving cars.
“There were movie theaters in Saudi Arabia. Women worked everywhere. We were just normal people developing like any other country in the world until the events of 1979.” Crown Prince Mohammed himself was born in 1985.
“Today, Saudi women still have not received their full rights. There are rights stipulated in Islam that they still don’t have. We have come a very long way and have a short way to go.” –Crown Prince Mohammed on improving conditions for women. pic.twitter.com/ke8fGvJsCA
