One year on

Today, exactly one year ago, women in Saudi Arabia started driving again. On the 24th June 2018, a driving ban that had been in place for many decades, was lifted. It was a huge step forward. To celebrate this day, we’re replaying our very first episode “Driving, at last!”

It’s quite apt that we’re playing this episode today as it was the same episode that launched Aswat: Voices of Arabia.

I’d also like to let you know that we’ll be taking a break for a while. In a couple of weeks my husband and I will be leaving Saudi Arabia after many years. As things are now, we’re not sure whether we’ll be returning or starting a new adventure in a different part of the world.

One thing I do know is that it’s been a pleasure sharing the stories of the women who I’ve met during the past year. I hope that their stories have inspired you as they have me.
