Education is something alot of Black people still see as valuable. It is often seen as one of the ways to make progress in life – from work to financial achievements and more. I’m always writing about Black women from a western perspective. But we shouldn’t forget Black women in other countries and all they are achieving too.
An increase in women in education
The number of women in education in Saudi Arabia has dramatically increased. In fact, Saudi Arabia is the 5th most improved country in the world in terms of educational attainment. This is certainly something to be proud of in the changing times.
The statistics between 1995 through to 2020 really show the positive movement of equality both in education and the labour market of Saudi Arabia with Saudi Women in the labour market now making up to thirty-five percent of all Saudi Workers. These figures are correct as of 2020.
There has been a phenomenal increase by two hundred and sixty-five percent rise in female students who have enrolled at university to obtain a bachelor’s degree between 1995 and 2018 and in 2017 fifty-nine percent of those were computer science students.

With their dramatic improvement towards equality, Saudi Arabia has seen fifty percent of graduates who graduate with a Bachelor’s degree to be women. These figures are correct as of 2018. There were also four percent more women to enrol at a university in Saudi Arabia in 2018.
