The Saudi Arabian delegates to international conference on women in business, held in London, were intelligent, interesting, funny and above all optimistic that the future for Saudi women in the kingdom's traditionally male dominated society was bright. Listening to them speak about their jobs, their children and their ambitions they could have been women from anywhere in the world. Saudi business women have often criticised the West for refusing to take them seriously. What the Saudi delegates shared was a determination to make a success of their business careers and all felt the kingdom's women were poised to see the benefits of three decades of slow but steady reform.
