In a country that bars women from driving, even the smallest advancement in women’s rights should be celebrated. So there’s no overstating the importance of al-­Zahran’s accomplishments. In 2013 she became the first woman licensed to practice law in Saudi Arabia, and last year she opened the kingdom’s first-ever all-woman law firm. Though her firm will represent both men and women, one of its stated goals is to argue cases on behalf of Saudi women in court.
