On Friday, for the first time, Saudi women were allowed into a sports stadium to watch a soccer match between two local teams. They were segregated in the stands from the male-only crowd with designated seating in the so-called "family section." The move was the first of Saudi Arabia's social reforms planned for this year to ease restrictions on women. The kingdom has also announced that starting in June women will be allowed to drive, lifting the world's only ban on female drivers.
