Saudi Arabian women should just leave the country and tell the men there that they can go ahead and breed with their robots.

Yeah; I'm surprised she did not have to be veiled...! ! :-(

Seriously, I hope despite its complete silliness this announcement does some good to the status of women over there.

Status of women? You do realize "she" is a robot and therefore has no gender?

The implications of a machine being a citizen are significant! What rights or obligations does it now have? Can it legally be turned off or dismantled without violating its rights? Does it have to pay taxes? Dangerous territory.
