The moves are aimed at ending cases of men divorcing women without telling them.

"The new measure ensures women get their rights when they're divorced", she said, referring to alimony.

This comes after Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman "lifted" the ban on women driving a year ago.

Starting from Sunday, the country's courts will be directed to send text messages informing women that their marriages are over.

"In most Arab countries, men can just divorce their wives", she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Suad Abu-Dayyeh, Middle East and North Africa consultant for gender rights group Equality Now, called the new measure "a step in the right direction".

A new regulation in Saudia Arbaia will end the practice of women being divorced without their knowledge.

Campaigners said the main sticking point remained Saudi Arabia's guardianship policy, whereby women must have permission from a male relative to work, travel, marry, and even get some medical treatment. "For one, they wouldn't have to pay any proper alimony or grant a woman her monetary rights".

But women still remain subject to male guardianship laws.

So women are allowed to drive since previous year auto, they were also admitted for the first time in sports stadiums.

The reforms have included women being given the right to drive.

"However, before the male guardianship system is reformed or ended, we can not say we're completely free", she added. At the same time in the past few months, numerous women were taken to the right Activists. "All it allows for is a new technological notification system for what is already a very outdated discriminatory system against women".
