Yet another example of a classical patriarchal society succumbing to the destructive will of those raging radical feminists:

Saudi Arabian King Abdullah has granted women the right to vote and run for office in forthcoming local elections, the Guardian reported today. The changes will occur after this week’s election, in which women are barred from voting or standing for office. “We have decided, after deliberation with our senior ulama [clerics] and others … to involve women in the Shura council as members, starting from the next term,” Abdullah announced. “Women will be able to run as candidates in the municipal election and will even have a right to vote.”

Next thing you know, those uppity wimmenz are gonna wanna take to them streets, too. No society is safe from the anti-freedom breasted scourge.
