have marched in britain to celebrate a hundred years since the first woman won the right to vote the suffragette movement campaigned for decades for women's rights using protest and direct action . was. a river of green going to invite. the first letters of those colors used by the suffragette movement g w v signifying give women the vote one hundred years ago some british women finally got it and these women are remembering their struggle with a unique march in the u.k. to national capitals cardiff belfast and here in london community groups have been working with professional artists to create some are you catching banners we commissioned a hundred artists each to work with a group that could be women in prison kids and schools. muslim women's federation sisters lots of different people you see behind me clean break or a prison survivors of domestic violence so lots and lots of different organizations
9:17 am
that we can rate a particular artist to go into back to work with them to make a banner in a series of workshops they also explored the history of the suffragettes as well as the later fight for things like access to birth control so these women were extremely radical women who were prepared to act deeds not words and make decisions that perhaps nowadays might like pretty long. many of the themes are obvious. others less so and adequate time to take workshops making the coming up with the parents the teacher coming up with the. idea kids except that it defies description we're hoping because i think if if things don't become surprise we call it controls the marches also saw homemade efforts and some definitely too young to vote came along to share. women together doing something together.
9:18 am
right. to take. their women marching here have come from all over england in the band is they've made highlight a whole range of issues but what they're all doing is looking back to the achievements of the suffragettes and looking forward to a more equal future. and they're hoping the younger generations will be as bold as those who came before the. al-jazeera. stuff a quick check of the headlines here on al-jazeera the stage is set for tuesday's historic summit in singapore between the leaders of the united states and north korea donald trump and kim jong un have both arrived and trump hopes to secure a deal for the full denuclearization of the korean peninsula but i didn't want to get into james bays as more from singapore we understand that ambassador kim song

9:21 am
and news continues here on al-jazeera after inside story station that's a watching by foot. is the drive to modernize serbia arabia taking a wrong turn more women activists top arrested days before the kingdom lifts a ban on female drivers as economic political and cultural reforms are implemented saudi leaders sending out mixed messages this is inside story.
9:22 am
hello and welcome to the program today with me peter dolby female activist continue to be arrested in saudi arabia too in the past three days rights groups say mia was detained for a post on social media expressing support for abdul aziz. who's also been locked up citing security forces have arrested seventeen activists in the past month most of them women who've long campaigned for the right to drive a car that is about to happen in two weeks' time the first driving licenses have been astute before the kingdom lifts its controversial men only ban state media has accused the arrested activists that being foreign agents the saudi vision twenty thirty has a plan to reduce dependence on oil but reforms proposed by the crown prince mohammed bin salma are controversial in the religiously conservative kingdom dozens of members of the world family government ministers and business men were arrested in a purge against corruption most were released after giving up their assets or paying
9:23 am
billions of dollars to the government been cell man's pledge to move some. to a more open and tolerant interpretation of islam the reforms affect education law and the courts traditionally controlled by the religious leaders in the country for the first time in history women are being allowed to drive and to attend sports events and almost forty year ban on cinemas and cultural events has ended in sell man plans to build the world's biggest sophron wealth fund as well as a five hundred billion dollars futuristic city called neon and a stake in the national oil company around coke is up for sale. ok there we are here we go let's bring in our guests from london we're joined by sami ham the editor in chief of international interest that's a current affairs analysis magazine with a focus on the middle east and from amman on skype data that mena regional
9:24 am
consultant for equality now and also from london mamdouh selami an international oil economist welcome to you all sami handy if i can come to you first just explain to us for you why do you think women are being detained in this way in saudi arabia . i think what we have to understand is that the whole code allowing women to drive in saudi arabia was mainly a p.r. move it was not designed by muhammad in cement to be a sweeping revolutionary revolutionizing the saudi system however the problem in saudi arabia now is that because they've allowed the women to drive for mohammed bin so man suddenly the activists are asking for more they're asking for too much too quick to change something that muhammad instrument is not prepared to do and something that he perhaps cannot do because the pace of change if it is too quick it in if it invites a revolt it invites protests domestically from the richest authorities and even from the common people from the common population because we have to be aware of one thing in terms of how these reforms are being received and how liberalisation
9:25 am
is being received it's being seen as a copy paste version of europe in that those advocates of liberalization are seeking to establish almost another acquires a european state in saudi arabia i say this because the european version of liberalization emerged in the aftermath of the bitter war with the church and as a result it relegated the religious influence to the personal and private sphere that our world the islamic world has no equivalent of this war this britta traumatic war that europe went through in other words islam in the arab world in the islamic world is considered akin to prosperity to glory to everything associated with the golden age so when one hundred been said a man is bringing a concepts from europe from america when it's being pushed by the u.s. by europeans by liberal activists there is a sort of reservation amongst arab society in general not just mohammed bin cement so even if mohammed been someone wants to implement these measures he's very wary that there will be a backlash you have to remember that arab society they are taught that it is the
9:26 am
pious saladin who conquered jerusalem it is the pious it lucy know who was the father of medicine it was the pious about how madonna has early who inspired st thomas aquinas who inspired adam smith the father economics it was the pious and jabbered who established algebra in other words it's all to do with religion. so when one hundred percent man is talking about liberalization talking about moderate islam talking about a more tolerant islam these are rhetorical this is retired that is dominant in europe and in the us and it has been received with much reservation in the arab world so in terms of these activists have been arrested i think the key problem is this mohammed mr mann is basically saying to them don't get over excited i let you drive and i gave you the right to drive but you guys are pushing this case weight and way too fast and this big hysteria that you have you need to calm down so i need to teach you a lesson and put in prison for a bit ok later all the main issues here that we're going to discuss the next half hour or so do you know where these women are what sort of conditions they're living
9:27 am
under and what's the point do you know when they'll be released. well we don't really have any information about where these women have been now i mean in which prison they are we don't have information from saudi arabia and that is a complete sign them. from actually the government also about where they are and their why they have been arresting them and in addition eban the activists who are still outside the prison or who have not been arrested they are also afraid to reveal any information if they know. the situation is very much alarming and so i doubt if they are and maybe i i contradict or i am not truly supporting what my colleague has said a little bit about you know having all these developments in saudi arabia as it westernized. issues this is not quite true i mean i am living in jordan
9:28 am
and i am all my life i have been i am and out of and palestinian and we have a we are witnessing so many amendments and so many developments in regard to the developments of and enhanced meant of women's rights in the region. so if you look at what's going on in tunisia and more typical in algeria even in jordan last year they have defeated. some parts there are some articles in the person or in that penal code where rape laws has been repeated in jordan an independent soul the women's movements in that region they are calling for or for for their rights for years by now it's not really a westernized. issue or it is more that women are aware that they are citizens and they need to be treated as citizens in their communities and then in their
9:29 am
societies understood so i just wanted to come to this play. some boil those down and put them to monticello me remember sodomy if your m.b.a.'s if you're the crown prince and you have a reform program surely a reform program is a whole it's it's it's an entity you can't reform a little bit you've got to reform everything you've got to be more liberal you've got to be more outward looking and that's what we're talking about today i guess is a symptom of that as opposed to a cause of that. well let me start by saying that saudi arabia and its budget depend on the oil resources to the cure of ninety person and since a discovery of oil in saudi arabia and nine hundred thirty eight they have never diversify their economy now they're out of talking and they talked before about
9:30 am
diversification so vision twenty thirty is another name for diet diversification. using reducing dependence on oil in their economy still i don't think that the reform programme covered by vision twenty thirty will achieve much i must admit it's a step in the right direction but i don't think it will at cheve budge add certainly not in the short tail for instance when the vision was launched what to sixty and. it included a close that said they need to create ten million jobs because unemployment among the young in saudi arabia and the saudi population is very young indeed they needed ten million million jobs before twenty twenty i don't
9:31 am
think that will be at cheer when even it twenty years short of expelling expecting it's out of saudi arabia then you are talking about reforming the oil in the city the talk has been for the last more than fifty or sixty years and they have not achieved much they are still dependent on oil and they are still excessive in their spending of the oil wealth of saudi arabia ok to talk about. education and you find that their universe it is order more of them are not geared they'll produce people who are employer been in that one give her this century ok sammy handy let's put that point to you occurs to me that raising a voice is an offense but it's not being codify it as being something that we could that we could number that we could label because for example one of the women
9:32 am
drivers her lawyer has been detained as well simply for talking about this in public so if you go public about the issue what's going on there. i think peter this is nothing new this has been the arab world for the last thirty forty fifty years i mean if you're talking to me as an arab this doesn't feel like anything strange this is what governments have been doing for ages this is doing it just across the border in most of the arab countries this thing these things take place as well i just want to mention peter in terms of the honorable guest who said that you know that is not the problem the westernization i'm not saying that i'm talking about the perception people are perceiving this as a westernization as mohammed said man trying to bring in western a zation and even if we talk about personal experiences living in jordan or the like we should be aware that there are some very important signs about the resistance to liberalization that is taking place in the arab world think about the elections after the arab spring in the first free and fair elections who dominated it was
9:33 am
islamist leaning parties they're the ones who dominated the liberals were very very far behind look at the reaction to this turkish drama on netflix their list editorial which is taking the muslim world by storm why it doesn't have any special hollywood epic scenes it's only because the the the hero is somebody who believes his success comes from god or comes from his religion in other words this is there it's deeply rooted in society and the reason why i say this is because the implementation of liberalization as it's being advocated today is counter to what many people in the arab society want in other words it's coming in as you have to think about it why is liberalization in the arab world according to many arabs according to many muslims it is the result of a rabid colonial oppressor who came in and demolished and islamic empire that had deviated from islamic principles so in other words liberalization today is simply the victor imposing their own values on a people that i'm societies are saying look you have a ready made recipe for success it is in islam and islamic principles if we're talking about women's rights islam guarantees human rights pursuit in the framework
9:34 am
of islam doc a framework of liberal position which has an aura. of a country becoming liberal can a country like saudi arabia liberalized so. wolf unless it has a genuine liberal leadership because what sammy seems to be saying is that people are prepared to protest as and when they want to to get more liberal rights and yet they are gifted to them and taken away by people who are completely illiberal. yeah i think i mean not just for saudi arabia i think we need a time and i think change is becoming very slow i mean in the region but surely it would come i mean now i really believe that of course now i mean that isn't there is that any genuine. really will political will in saudi arabia so to speak about really liberating women and or saw granting women their rights
9:35 am
as for example male guardianship system is there women they can't to travel abroad because they have to have the permission of that many guardian either their fathers their brothers their husbands whatever that i. to even study abroad they have to be accompanied by a male guardian so yes that odd am still we are living in a very harsh situations as women in that region but i think slowly but surely the. advancement and progress progress there. ments of women's position will be coming that is still a need but shortly you know as i mentioned we are witnessing lots of developments in other regions tunisia in in march two thousand this year
9:36 am
i participated in a demonstration where women's groups human rights organizations political parties they are demanding for equal inheritance rights so this is this is there for us in that in that debris journey is quite inventive progressive step that women are kicking lead and you know asking for dead rights because i mean. we are living in a difference to is a different life you know women now are heading the seminaries you know women they are ram. sorry. sorry go ahead sam what was the point of the minority i'm saying the using the example of inheritance is a very very bad example only one person does not i think into account context of society the other roles in society it cannot be called progress and what sipsey has done here is appeal to an international audience a secular audience at the expense of a majority so many conservative society it is a tyranny of the minority what simpson is doing in tunisia but the rest of your
9:37 am
points i mean i can agree with that woman's rights definitely there should be more i mean just one for one one point two seven in london how much of this you've already touched on this how much of this say when you look at the situation surrounding the company around co is about the country's ability to look outward instead of being in sooner and looking in on itself there are other countries in this region that are quite outward looking and they are or they have successfully diversified into other industries because they're playing a long game the game is as long as the game that saudi arabia is playing but saudi arabia still behaves as if it expects the rest of the world to come to riyadh as opposed to riyadh going to the rest of the world. well sooner or later they will need the words to deal with them and help them the diversification program you referred to is not going to achieve much shortly when you talk about saudi aramco which is the main source of
9:38 am
income for saudi arabia they are talking about the i.p.o. which is the initial public offering of selling five per cent of saudi arabi cannot be productive assets of oil but different assets four hundred billion dollars that is not going to happen and i will tell you why because the saudis have valued the i.p.o. at more than hundred billion dollars that cannot be right because based on the proven reserves of oil they have. many organizations including ords three general and the world bank and many other analysts said that the value could be based on smaller proven reserves saudi arabia say's it has proven there's two hundred sixty eight billion barrels my research shows that
9:39 am
that is between eighty and ninety billion and many other experts also agree with that so if you base the i.p.o. value on that smaller reserves i think the value of the i.p.o. is between fifty to seventy five billion still saudi arabia with their eyes is only prices now it does not have to sell at any percentage in the saudi aramco it doesn't need the money financially with the approval of oil prices that's why i say the i.p.o. is not going to happen. it will happen in their various records it is good says three it on adding value to your oil exports is stead of exporting oil as crude oil exported as a refined products more of petro chemicals saudi arabia could without the next two
9:40 am
or three years don't mean the petrochemical industry is in the world and become the major burger useta and the major export that for about a more they can use even five per cent of their oil revenue to expand food production that's an important part saudi arabia imports more of that thirty billion that is a year of food but here has got mostly coming from the case ok you keep point man do is clear then they are basically saying that they have had and they will continue to have an awful lot of money in the bank so they can absorb the hit souad to what degree is this a difficult course souad what one one question to you to what degree is this a difficult course for pin cell man to plot in as much as when there was the when there was the vogue magazine cover of a saudi princess posing in
9:41 am
a car because she's got her driver's license so she will have her driver's license there was a backlash against that not against per se women driving but against the fact that n.b.s. has has opened up this pandora's box his critics might say of cosmetic changes but how easy is it for him to pass the clothes that pandora's box. well i am i had in a didn't see the ad that you are mentioning. about the princess of saudi arabia driving and the whole debate about that but i want to comment on what my colleague has just mentioned is that. yes i mean i don't agree with him that what i have mentioned about tunisia is there is a negative or a bad example because this is the just there just to show and indicate that women are you know asking for their rights in the in what country is to the extent that
9:42 am
it might according to some interpretations it might contradict islam and the shoddy are so this is one one aspect of that i mean if we want to concentrate on women driving in so deborah i don't think it is just the issue of women. you know just calling for the driving they have been activists for years you know calling for ending male guardianship system which controls every aspect of their life i think we have i mean that i as women in the region and elsewhere to be treated as citizens in the country we have lots lots of discrimination in the low end in that implementation of the laws and in a what cultures all do we have good sometimes good to additions and cultures where women should be respected and you know and even islam you know they provide women with the respect and so on but still i mean discrimination is there and we need to
9:43 am
