In response to the news that Saudi Arabia is now allowing women to drive, NBC’s Megyn Kelly criticized the United States for having “such a long way to go” on women’s rights.
After announcing that the Muslim country is now allowing women to drive, Kelly almost immediately turned to criticizing perceived gender inequality in the United States.
“Do you think that–in fact–women have achieved equality here? Raise your hand if the answer’s yes.”
When only one person raised their hand to affirm, Kelly then asked those who don’t think women have equality in the United States to raise their hand. Several people in the overwhelmingly female audience raised their hand.
Megyn responded, “That is how I feel too. I just feel like we have such a long way to go. I mean, obviously, Saudi Arabia has much, much longer. But, we gotta work on our own house, and we got a lot of things we can improve here.
She adds, “Saudi Arabia–yes progress, so good, but–keep workin on it!”
