    CNN News 女性禁驾令将废除 沙特女性明年有望自己驾车 20171005

    Our last show of the week begins with a significant cultural change in Saudi Arabia. The kingdom and absolute monarchy has announced that women will be allowed to drive. Saudi Arabia is the last country on earth where this is illegal.
    Experts say it's one of the most religiously conservative Islamic countries and that this issue has divided the nation for years. But they also called this a signal that the nation's 81-year-old king and 32-year-old crown prince are determined to reform society. Their decision is partly economic.
    The Saudi economy is heavily dependent on oil and oil prices have dropped in recent years, decreasing government revenue. Allowing women to drive could increase their numbers in the workforce which could in turn boost the economy.
    Not everyone agrees with the change. Saudi critics have called allowing women to drive inappropriate and threatening to traditional Saudi families.
    But for those celebrating the change which takes effect next summer, it's been a long time coming.
    BECKY ANDERSON, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Saudi Arabia's young, ambitious crown prince is making history in the kingdom, letting women hit the roads here, meaning simple things like this allowed everywhere else in the world will be allowed here too.
    Although that's come down from the palaces, it's really come up from the streets. Here, right after the ban, the first protest.
    UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I love driving. I wish I can drive in the country, in our country.
    ANDERSON: From then, until now, time and again, year after year, women, thousands of them, taking on the often punishing fight to get Saudi back to the future, to where it was in 1989, the year before the ban came in, alongside the countless protests and just as many arrests.
    The battle is being fought on social media, wildly popular in the kingdom and that's where the celebrations are. Like this by prominent activist Manal al-Sharif, jailed for driving for nine days back in 2011, forced into exile. Now, sharing a photo of herself behind the wheel, smiling, happy, proud. The caption: the rain begins with a single drop.
    There's a real arc of history here, in a country celebrating his 87th birthday, this in a kingdom where just on Saturday, for the first time ever, women were allowed into a sports stadium.
    Saudi women are often seen as under the thumb, hidden away. But now, they are slowly emerging as soon to be drivers and much needed workers. As women start to turn the wheel, so the country is starting to steer in a new direction.

    参考译文:

    本周最后一期节目来关注沙特阿拉伯的一项重大文化变革。实行绝对君主制的沙特王国宣布,将允许女性驾驶。沙特是世界上唯一一个禁止女性驾驶的国家。
    专家表示,沙特是宗教上最保守的伊斯兰国家之一,多年来女性驾驶问题在该国一直存在分歧。不过专家称,这是沙特81岁的国王和32岁的王储决心进行社会改革的信号。他们做出这一决定部分是出于经济考虑。
    沙特的经济严重依赖石油,而最近几年石油价格一直在下跌,导致政府收入减少。允许女性驾驶可以增加劳动力,继而推动经济发展。
    但是,不是所有人都赞同这项改革。沙特批评人士称,允许女性驾驶并不恰当,这可能给传统的沙特家庭带来威胁。
    而对那些庆祝这项改革的人来说,他们已经等了很长时间,这一改革将于明年夏天生效。
    CNN记者贝基·安德森:沙特年轻且雄心勃勃的王储正在创造沙特王国的历史,让女性上路驾驶,意味着世界其他地方都允许的简单事情现在在沙特也获准了。
    虽然这是王室宣布的决定,但这其实是来自街头的努力。就在禁止女性开车条令颁布以后,这里进行了第一场抗议活动。
    身份不明的女性:我喜欢驾驶。我希望我能在我们的国家开车。
    安德森:从那时到现在,数千名女性一次又一次、年复一年地进行斗争,希望让沙特回到1989年,也就是禁令实施前的那年,但是这种斗争经常会使她们遭到惩罚,无数的抗议活动也导致多人被捕。
    社交媒体上也在进行斗争,社交媒体在沙特王国备受欢迎,禁令解除后人们也在社交媒体平台进行了庆祝。比如杰出活动人士马纳尔·沙里夫,她曾因在2011年开车9天而被监禁,后来被迫流放。现在,她在社交网站上分享了一张自己坐在驾驶座上的照片,照片中的她在微笑,看上去幸福又自豪。她留下的文字说明是:雨从一滴水开始落下。
    这是真正的历史弧线,沙特正在庆祝建国87周年,就在周六,女性首次获准进入体育馆。
    沙特女性经常被视为处于受制状态,而且要隐藏起来。但是现在,她们很快会成为司机和国家急需的工人。女性即将可以驾驶上路,而沙特也将开始向新的方向发展。
