For the first time in its history, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is set to allow women to vote during its elections this December, according to local media. 

According to numerous reports, this December will see a groundbreaking moment in Saudi's history, as women will be able to officially and legally register their votes during the elections held at the end of 2015. 

If the reports are true and come to fruition in December, this will be a giant step forward for women's rights in a country, which has received criticism globally for its treatment of women.

"This is something new to women," an unidentified woman told Saudi state television,  Al Ekhbariya. "I am pretty sure women will have different opinions and thoughts. I am very happy."
