This is aligned with the lifted ban on women driving in the Kingdom, which has provided them with new job opportunities.
Crown Prince MBS had also made a comment during an interview with CBS earlier in the month about women wearing abayas in Saudi Arabia, saying ‘they do not need to wear an abaya as long as their attire is ‘decent and respectful’ similar to men.
