Having got the right to vote in Saudi Arabia, women now seek to be treated as full citizen of the country. In a landmark move, ladies have put together the first-ever petition asking the government to abolish the country's controversial male guardianship law.
Currently, a woman must be accompanied by a male relative - typically her husband, father or brother - when leaving the house, even when running simple errands.
She also needs permission from a man to marry, travel abroad, rent a property, and obtain a passport.
Over 14,500 women have signed the unprecedented petition, which will now be put before the Saudi government.
"Women should be treated as a full citizen," activist Aziza Al Yousuf, who delivered the petition to the Royal Court on Monday, told media.
"This is not only a women's issue, this is also putting pressure on normal men … this is not an issue for women only."
