    This is mind blowing news! The Arab Spring has truly been a wake up call to the Saudis and has forced the issue of securing basic civil rights for their citizens. But the road to democracy is long.

    Saudi women have also been given the right to run in the next election. This decision covers the following: first, the right of women to become members in the Shura Council and secondly, the right of women to announce their candidacy to become members of the local municipality councils. But the devil may be in the details. What kind of activities, and what kind of delegations will be given to women who become members of the Shura and municipal councils. Will they be left in the shadows within these councils?
