Women in Saudi Arabia are to get more basic freedoms as the king relaxes the country’s controversial guardianship laws.

The KSA continues to be one of the world’s most gender-segregated nations.

At present women must live under the supervision of a male guardian, requiring his permission to do things like travel, access education, see doctors, get married or make police complaints.
