Riyadh's hosting of Arab Fashion crowns Saudi march for empowering women

Saudi Arabia's announcement of hosting its first-ever Arab Fashion week in March crowned the great  measures adopted by King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud for women to join the march of development.

In the past, Dubai used to host the Arab Fashion Week.

However, Dubai will continue to host its own parallel Arab Fashion Week, with the sixth edition slotted for May 9 to May 12.

Under the women empowerment measures, Saudi Arabia has witnessed many things for first time in its history.

In February, Saudi woman was allowed for first time to perform on stage. Najat, a 21-year-old actress, was the one who took the lead by performing The Emperor's New Groove.

In January, Saudi women were given the green light for the first time ever to enter a football stadium to watch a game.

Also, January had marked a major change in the Saudi policy with the Ministry of Justice officially announcing 300 jobs opportunities for women.

Saudi women were also allowed to apply for 140 jobs at passports office to serve at airports and the country's land borders.

Saudi women had been also given the go-ahead to start businesses without the permission of a male guardian.

Last month, Saudi Arabia hosted for the first time in its history the first World Series event of 2018 – the Saudi PSA Women's Squash Masters.

In November 2017, the country also introduced the women's basketball tournament for universities, which took place in Jeddah and was attended by about 3,000 women.

In September 2017, King Salman issued a decree allowing women to drive for the first time.
