Legal Progress for Women
Under the guidance of His Majesty King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, and His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has reviewed civil and labor laws and regulations that affect the ability of women to travel, work and participate in Saudi society.
Vision 2030 recognizes that a successful, modern nation must encourage and empower all members of society, including women. To that end, women’s rights have grown and expanded under the current leadership, and Saudi women are more engaged than ever in society, government and business.
