Praise Saudi Arabia for Lifting Ban on Women Drivers

Target: Salman, King of Saudi Arabia

Goal: Praise Saudi Arabia for allowing women to drive and urge the nation to continue to pass laws that support women’s equality.

Saudi Arabia is issuing driver’s licenses to women for the first time in the nation’s history. Saudi Arabia started by issuing licenses to ten women in preparation of lifting the world’s only gender ban on driving. The political move is surprising, as a number of women who protested the ban and campaigned for the right to drive are under arrest.

The first ten driver’s licenses were issued to women who already held licenses in other nations. Therefore, the women only had to pass a brief driving test before receiving their Saudi Arabian licenses.

Sign this petition to urge Saudi Arabia to continue to pass laws that support women’s equality.


To His Majesty Salman,

The recent decision to allow women to drive in Saudi Arabia is a major win for gender equality. Saudi Arabia has now joined every other nation in the world in allowing both genders to drive. This type of policy change allows women to be more independent and better serve their families and their communities. I urge you to continue to enact changes that empower women and push towards gender equality.
