Women in Saudi Arabia are to be given the right to vote and run in municipal elections, the Gulf Kingdom's King Abdullah has ruled.

He said they would also have the right to be appointed to the consultative Shura Council.

The news will be welcomed by activists who have long called for greater rights for women in Saudi Arabia.

But the changes will not be implemented until after Thursday's municipal elections, from which women are barred.

I don't mean to be pessimistic, but this will have dire consequences as mullas will go ga-ga over it issuing a shower of fatwas.

Who cares for mullahs and their fatwas. They simply ignore the fact that Islam gives woman proper representation and rights.

All hail King Abdullah. I kept telling you guys things are changing but noooooo nobody listened to me.

Not only this but women will alos be a part of the Shoura council.... Which is our senate sort to speak. 99% of the Shoura's legislation become law.

ALSO... On another news the Shoura council have opened the file of women driving today. And all signs says they will be able to soon. God I am so happy right now.

dont underestimate the power of mullahs.
by the way, a step in the right direction. Since Islam rose from this land, it has great effect on the other muslim world, be it negative or positive.
