Allowing female media workers to manage activities themselves in public places

Having been limited to women’s sites, female media workers are now allowed to manage activities themselves in public places.  

Ajel learned from its sources that the competent authorities have agreed to allow females with media licenses to manage their activities directly and openly in public places for men and women; such as forums, media seminars, and others.

The sources added that the approval was made after coordination between the General Authority for Audiovisual Media and the Ministry of Interior, to find a mechanism to ensure the realization of the public interest, in accordance with the legal and regulatory controls, which govern the work of women in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

It is worth mentioning that the Council of Ministers postponed taking this decision for five years, and women were allowed to work in places reserved for women only.
