Saudi Arabia: Library opens its doors to women

From the article:

Women in the Saudi coastal city of Dammam are able to use its library from Monday unaccompanied, according to the local 'al-Watan' newspaper.

"Female students no longer need to be escorted by a male relative," said the library's director, Saad al-Harithi, quoted by the paper.

"The library is a public place open to everyone and this rule was preventing women from coming.

"It is a safe place for everyone, and especially for women, who use a special area just for them," al-Harithi said.
