They Can't Drive, but in 2015 Saudi Women Get the Vote

Hosted by

Yesterday King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia granted women the right to vote and to run in future municipal elections. It's the biggest change in a decade for women in a notoriously conservative kingdom that enforces strict separation of the sexes -- and which still bans women from driving. What impact will women voters have on society? Marwan Bishara is a senior political analyst for Al Jazeera English, and the editor and host of Empire.
