Saudi Arabia’s Women Participate in Kiswah Tradition: First in Saudi Arabia’s history

Saudi women have participated in the annual tradition of changing the Kiswah (Ghilaf-e-Kaaba) for the first time in the Kingdom’s history. 159 craftsmen changed the Kiswah of the holy Kaaba, weighing 1,350 kilogrammes and standing 14 meters.

Eight cranes were used to hoist the Kiswah, sew four corners, and insert lantern designs. The Kingdom has adopted reforms to empower women, including allowing women to drive cars, enter playgroups, and pursue occupations previously accessible only to men.

From 2019, Saudi Arabian women can travel abroad without permission and apply for passports, ID documents, and official registrations directly without a male guardian.
