Abstract EN

This paper examined the reasons why women do not continue their quest to achieve higher education.

It highlights and explores the barriers and difficulties faced by women who want to continue their studies or reenter educational institutions to pursue lifelong learning.

Women face many situational, institutional and financial barriers that can prevent them from continuing or even starting their education.

Furthermore, gender inequalities have also been debated and how these boundaries may affect the growth of today‟s woman.

Therefore, women need appropriate support to overcome these barriers and resolve their particular challenges.

This paper examined the barriers from a Saudi perspective, both as a Saudi female and Master student, and use transformative learning theory to explore my perspective.

This paper also discussed the theoretical framework discussing how transformative learning plays its role in development of women‟s confidence.

Additionally, it also compared the previous state of Saudi women with the current state especially after the advent of vision 2030 by H.E.

along with the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman initiated and proposed vision 2030.

This vision has given a ray of hope to women‟s intentions towards seeking higher education and working alongside men in various fields of life.

Solutions to the problems have been summarized, which include distant learning.
