Saudi women make their mark in business

Despite all the crap women in Saudi Arabia have to put up with, many are making headways into the business world. You don't need to be able to vote or drive when you're making hundreds of millions of dollars a year.

Women's emancipation has a long and turbulent history, full of contradictions. Whether it's those fighting for universal suffrage, but forgetting their darker skinned or colonial sisters, or those fighting for the right to get into universities and the workplace, there are always less visible struggles. The struggle against the hijab in Iran, for example, maybe gets headlines whereas the struggle to get into the boardroom doesn't.
