Saudi Women Will No Longer Need A Man’s Permission To Travel, Study Or Make Police Complaints

Interesting. I'm sure there will be much 2 steps forward 1 step back, and such, but, it's hard to see this as anything but good.

From the Daily Mail:
A move by Saudi Arabia to give women more control over their life choices by relaxing a controversial male guardian system has been welcomed as another small step for women in the conservative kingdom. 
Saudi Arabia is well known to be one of the world’s most gender-segregated nations, where women live under the supervision of a male guardian, cannot drive, and must wear head-to-toe black garments in public. Women need approval from a man to travel, study and get some health treatments. 
But local media reported this week that King Salman has issued an order allowing women to benefit from government services such as education and healthcare without the consent of a male guardian.
