Saudi Arabia allows women to join armed forces

Date: 27 February 2021 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • Women in Saudi Arabia can now take up arms and enter the military, the latest profession in the kingdom to open up to female recruits.
  • Saudi Arabian women can be employed as soldiers, lance corporals, corporals, sergeants, and staff sergeants.
  • Jobs have been gradually opening up for Saudi women, whose increased participation in the workforce is part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s plans to transform the Arab world’s largest economy.
  • The plan to allow women into the military was first announced in 2019, the same year the kingdom said it would allow women to leave the country without permission from a male relative, a major step toward ending a restrictive guardianship system that has been heavily criticised at home and abroad.
