issue(動詞)核發

Last Tuesday night, King Salman of Saudi Arabia ordered the reform in a royal decree, requesting that drivers’ licenses be issued to women who wanted them. This move was seen as a great step in the right direction.
 
上週二(9月26日)晚間,沙烏地阿拉伯國王薩曼發佈政令,允許向國內女性核發駕照,此舉被視為朝正確方向前進的一大舉措。

demarcate(動詞)定…的界線

Known as a country strictly demarcated gender roles and severely limits the role of women in public life, Saudi Arabia has undergone an unprecedented change. Saudi Arabia had been the last country in the world in which women were banned from driving. A woman who was once imprisoned for driving commented to this announcement, “Today the last country on earth to allow women to drive finally made a change…we did it.”

沙國一向以嚴格區分性別角色界線,以及嚴格規範女性在公開場合的舉止聞名的國家,現在正經歷前所未有的改變。沙國是目前全球最後一個還禁止女性開車的國家。一位曾經因開車上路被拘禁的女性表示,「今天地球上最後一個禁止女性開車的國家終於作出改變了。我們做到了!」
