Saudi Arabian women allowed to vote for the first time ever

Congrats, Saudi Arabia!
Saudi Arabia was the last country in the world to allow women to vote, but they finally made it across that finish line last week. Not only were women allowed to vote for the first time ever, they were also allowed to be on the ballot as candidates. Although female candidates had to speak from behind a partition, or have a male proxy give their speeches for them.
