In accordance with the Kingdom's Vision 2030, women began to play an influential role in the future of Saudi Arabia. They are given, nowadays, the opportunity to effectively participate in the Kingdom’s sustainable development. As a result of these developments, women have gained many benefits and have been allowed to enter new areas of work in various sectors. Saudi women issues and their participation in the Kingdom’s development has become a top priority for many of the official authorities and the concerned parties.
