The king’s visit to Moscow would have been unthinkable just two years ago, when Russia intervened in the Syrian conflict on the side of President Bashar Assad. Russian airpower helped turn the tide of the war, supporting Assad’s troops as they moved to crush an armed insurrection that raged since 2011. Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states side...

What Saudi Women Need More Than a Driver ’s License
Earlier this week, I did something perfectly ordinary: I renewed my U.S. driver’s license. That’s something I couldn’t do in my home country of Saudi Arabia because there is no women’s section at the DMV — there is no such process at all. But after decades of protests, The Kingdom announced on September 26th that it will allow women to drive next summer. And while that will be a welcome change, as a Saudi woman, the change I’m really waiting for is something far more fundamental. I want women to be called by their own names by their fellow citizens. As it stands ...

Playboy Founder Hugh Hefner Has Died Aged 91
(LOS ANGELES) — Playboy founder Hugh M. Hefner, the pipe-smoking hedonist who revved up the sexual revolution in the 1950s and built a multimedia empire of clubs, mansions, movies and television, symbolized by bow-tied women in bunny costumes, has died at age 91. Hefner died of natural causes at his home surrounded by family on Wednesday night, Playboy said in a statement. As much as anyone, Hefner helped slip sex out of the confines of plain brown wrappers and into mainstream conversation.

A Ride With a Woman Who Dared to Drive in Saudi Arabia
Back in 2011, I went to Saudi Arabia on assignment. While I was there, buzz was building about one of the more peculiar revolts to have been inspired by the Arab uprisings earlier that year: women in the country were taking to the streets to fight for their right to drive. Though in this case, they weren’t marching, but driving. Quietly, with little fanfare and a lot of courage, they started driving to the grocery store, to the doctor, or to pick their kids up from school. What may seem like thankless errands for most women in the world had become an act of revolution. Giddy with excitement, I joined one woman, Maha ...

Saudi Arabia Will Finally Allow Women to Drive Cars
Saudi Arabia’s government announced on Tuesday that it will grant women the right to drive cars next year in a major sign of social change for the ultraconservative kingdom. The civil rights breakthrough follows years of civil disobedience since the 1990s by women demanding the right to drive in a country that whose social mores have been constrained since its founding in 1932 by a conservative religious establishment.
