Saudi women have been accomplishing great things and it seems like there is no stopping to it.
A new research shows that Saudi Arabia has experienced the highest growth rate amongst the G20 countries
According to data released by Pew Research Center, Saudi Arabia has experienced the highest growth rate – among G20 countries – of women joining the workforce in the past 20 years.
The data revealed that women accounted for 23 percent of the kingdom’s labor force in 2018 – a 7 percent increase since 1998. Saudi Arabia’s growth rate is the highest among the G20 member states including Australia, Germany, Brazil, and others.
In recent years, women in Saudi Arabia have seen a number of job opportunities open up to them in various sectors – saudi women can now work in several professions and fields previously limited to men.
