Media Analysis (Major News Story) #2

http://www.cnn.com/2011/09/25/world/meast/saudi-women-vote/index.html?hpt=wo_c2

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia announced today that women in
Saudi Arabia will be allowed to vote and run for office in future municipal
elections. Voting is a major right for women in Saudi Arabia to receive and
hopefully their rights will expand and remove barriers that restrict women from
living an independent lifestyle.  I have always
been interested in politics so when my 18th birthday finally came,
along with a Canadian election, I was very excited to vote. I think women
forget how much of a privileged it is to have the opportunity to vote. Stories
like this remind us.
