20 Women win seats in Local Government

I found the recent newspaper attention to the local government elections in Saudi Arabia interesting. This is the first election that women have been allowed to run in and over 900 women nominated. They won just 20 of  over 2,000 seats, just 1%. It is a giant leap for this country and for women's representation.
