5. “It’s important for me to make sure that the men see and recognize that that woman is their equal.”

6. “These are things that are quick wins. We know we can do them – women in stadiums, women driving – that’s great, but women driving is not the end all, be all of women’s rights.”

7. “The choices that women have today are greater than yesterday and every day they will grow more.” 

8. “It’s time to focus on Saudi women’s capabilities, not their clothes.”

10.“But you have to understand that we’re not working for anybody outside this nation, we’re working for the women of this nation, for the men of our nation, for the evolution to where we need to be, and that’s how we will benefit youth, that’s how we’ll be a global player.”
