Should Saudi Women Be Able to Drive?
Sometimes I wonder if I truly understand how much I take for granted. While scanning BBC's Latest Headlines, I saw an article about a 3-minute Saudi women video protest that featured a woman driving because in Saudi Arabia it's illegal for women to drive. According to the article, many conservatives continue to resist reform, arguing it would lead to mingling of the sexes which is banned under Saudi Arabia's strict interpretation of Islamic Law.
I honor these brave women who are willing to take such a huge risk and protest. The BBC asks the following 2 questions:
Do you think women in Saudi Arabia should be allowed to drive? YES!
What do you think of this video protest? I don't understand Arabic so I can't really comment on the content, but I love the spirit of it.
