To The Contrary

TTC Extra: Women in Saudi Arabia Allowed to Travel Alone

Clip: Season 28 | 7m 52s

Women in Saudi Arabia no longer need a male sponsor to obtain a passport. This means they can travel abroad without needing the approval of a husband or male family member. While this was seen as a huge step for women's rights in the country, women still are a long way from equality. PANEL: Anushay Hossain, Patrice Onwuka, Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), Tiana Lowe
