Saudi Arabia is a country in the Arabian peninsula that has seen many new changes in 2017.  Some of these changes include granting a humanoid robot citizenship, women gaining  the right to drive cars, and  allowing  stand-up comedy! Although that may sound crazy, people finally can stand up in a crowd and make people laugh. It is also a huge change for women to start driving.  Slowly,  but finally, women are gaining more rights.

Saudi Arabia is the first country in the world to grant citizenship to a robot.  Sophia, the social humanoid robot,  has now been granted robot citizenship.  Not only does she have a humanlike sense of humor, she also is fighting for women’s rights.  Sophia was designed to look like Audrey Hepburn, and can express human feelings such as anger, sadness and fear.  Her creator, Dr. David Hanson, Jr., used to be a Disney Imagineer.  

As mentioned,  the Saudi Arabian government will be  allowing women to drive. Although Americans may take this for granted,  women in Saudi Arabia are now looking forward to June 2018 when the law will become in  effect.  This  is mostly a win-win for everyone because women will now be able to work more,  which in turn gives the government extra money. Women have always wanted the right to drive. Some people say it is unofficial or a disgrace to their culture for women to drive.  In the end, the law was passed which made many women in Saudi Arabia very happy. All in all, Saudi Arabia has changed a lot.  We are excited to hear what other news Saudi Arabia will have in 2018!
