We will never get enough of witnessing great leaps and drastic change happen for women of Saudi Arabia, with each day passing, they’re given the chance to shine in various fields and take on challenging roles for the first time and this time, they’re taking on military duties.
The first military section for Saudi women has been launched in the Saudi Arabian Armed Forces by Saudi military chief of staff, General Fayyed Al-Rawaili.
Regulation of acceptance and allocated locations where the female staff will be stationed were both explained by the director general of admission and enlistment, Maj. Gen. Imad Al-Aidan.
The roles that women of Saudi Arabia can now fill in the military include lance corporals, corporals, sergeants, and staff sergeants in the Royal Saudi Land Forces, Air Force, Saudi Arabian Navy, Air Defense Forces, Strategic Missile Forces and Armed Forces Medical Services.
This is the first initiative of its kind to allow women of the Kingdom to climb higher ranks and take on senior roles.
“Naturally, they will enter a new sphere of work. It’s a reflection of a national belief in the equality between women and men,” former Shoura Council member Haya Al-Muni’I has previously said.
