Saudi women takes a new step By

To prepare them for this new-found freedom, the first women's auto showroom has opened in the city of Jeddah on Thursday.

Saudi Arabia, which was the only country in the world to forbid female drivers, previous year also allowed women to drive in the country.

Around 7,500 seats in the 62,000-seat King Abdullah Stadium were made available to women and families, according to Saudi sports authorities.

In the stadium, keeping in mind the women spectators, a "family entrance" was created.
