Great news, peeps.
Female students will no longer need parental consent to leave their university campuses.
Taif University explained on it official Twitter account that the decision resulted from a royal decree which asked government agencies not to require women to obtain the consent of a guardian when providing services to them “unless there is a legal basis for this request”.
The university administration said that it was a public facility like other public facilities that provided services to citizens
It stressed that it was neither valid nor within its authority to restrict people’s movement or freedom at the university.
People think this decision is a bold step, and can have a positive impact by spreading a spirit of freedom and self-reliance among female students.
