Saudi Arabian women no longer forced to wear hijabs

Saudi Arabian women no longer forced to wear hijabs
Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman said in an interview last week with CNN that women in his country don‘t have to wear abayas (full body black robe) as long as their dresses are „decent“. Since that interview women all over Saudi Arabia have dropped their hijabs (photo is from the ComicCon in Dschidda) and have been seen showing their hair. 

It’s still a long way for equality in Saudi Arabia, but this is a huge step!

Frontpage edit: This isn’t a political or pro Saudi post. I‘m well aware that the crown prince is a two-face person who is responsible for many innocent deaths in Yemen. I just wanted to highlight this huge change in a very religiously conservative country.
