Women, work and driving in Saudi Arabia

Hi. I worked in Saudi Arabia in 1998-1999. Back then I remember that women were not allowed to work (publicly), nor drive etc.

 

Besides the more accepted nursing & teaching jobs, there were a few "back office" marketing jobs, browsing convenience stores, working from home type jobs.

Does anyone know if things have become more relaxed lately?

Depending on what city you decide to settle into, women interested in working in Saudi Arabia may find more opportunities than in the late nineties
