Saudi school books show women's photos for the first time

Photos of women have been added to English high school books for the first time in the public education system in Saudi Arabia, the al-Hayat newspaper reported. Photos of women had been banned in all school books in both girls' and boys' schools since the inception of Saudi state education in 1926. The current academic year, however, saw the circulation of the first series of books that include women's pictures. The new copies are still in the experimental phase, however, and the final authorization for the books to be in full circulation is set to take place at the end of the academic year.
