Climbing Mt. Everest Was Easy

Last week ten powerful and courageous women from Saudi Arabia reached the peak of Mt. Everest. You can know a little more about who they are by clicking here. The unfortunate truth is that these women were responsible enough to plan and achieve their goal for a great cause.

Yet these same women are denied the basic rights, which can be driving a car. Traveling outside the country without a written consent of a male guardian is illegal. Education institutes require the father only to provide her daughter the permission to study, HR requires a male guardian to provide authorization from a male guardian for her to work in the Kingdom. Worst part is to get serious medical attention a male relative must be present and authorize doctors to perform surgery or provide any other medical assistance.

Despite all these set backs these ladies were able to conquer their fears and reach to the top of the world.
