News24xx.com -  Women in Saudi Arabia finally can shop for new cars after the country gives them the right to drive.


They can finally choose whatever car they want to buy with visiting the first showroom that filled with women.


The showroom opened at a shopping center in the Red Sea port of Jeddah west, five months after King Salman's decision allowed women to be able to drive a vehicle. It offers a wide selection of vehicle shapes that can be used by women.


The company plans to open more car showrooms for women next year.


Saudia Arabia is the last country in the world to allow women to be behind the wheel. For years, many activists have been fighting for the right to drive, and sick of having to rely on male drivers or their male relatives for an expensive fee just to go to work or go out with friends.


Manal al-Sharif is one of the leading campaigners against the ban. She said: 'There is no time for us to be quiet again.'


She tells of her journey to rebellion, which ended in her capture after she filmed her to driving and posting that video on YouTube as part of the 'Woman2Drive' campaign in 2011.

She said: 'Speak, that's the only way to bring awareness and change things in Saudi Arabia. '
