Never stop fighting for rights Saudi Women Revolution

This was one of the first public acts of the newly-formed Saudi Women Revolution, a movement set up to campaign for the end of Saudi Arabia's discriminatory laws. Women should be able to take responsibility for everything they do themselves. It makes my blood drive high that nothing is changing. Municipal elections in Saudi Arabia will be held in September for only the second time in more than 40 years. The Saudi electoral commission was reported to have said that women cannot vote because preparations had not been made to keep them separate. As election centers across Saudi Arabia opened on April 23 for voters to register for forthcoming municipal elections, groups of women turned up asking to take part. Saudi Women Revolution is planning to publish its own formal statement of demands this week and will then be asking women to sign their names to it.
