Essentially a "You have been notified" sort of thing. The other is that this a move designed to throw a bone to the emaciated but vocal liberals in the Kingdom, and to make some Western newspapers happy. It's hard to decide which tbqh, and it might be a bit of both. The problem is its fantastically unclear who's making real executive decisions on this stuff so motive is tremendously difficult to decipher.
    In any event, a complete turnaround would strike me as more like "throwing a bone." This more cautious approach strikes as (hopefully) real change occurring. No way would I expect these women in a Flo-Jo outfit. I'm just glad they're attending at all.
