I wanted to write about the moment when stopped crying every day, the moment I was free, the moment when the government decided to let us breath a bit, we as women. In 1/8/2019 the government made few adjustments on traveling documents and they state that everyone above 21 can issue a passport without agreement of his/her guardian angel. The day makes a huge impact on Saudi women’s life and many of them will still consider this day as the fall of guardianship law. Now, since I’m legally free I start sleeping better and nothing will stop me from accomplishing my dreams.
1/8 is the day
