Saudi Women Driving: The Beginning of the World's Largest Prison-Break?
This is the story to watch from the Middle East today: Saudi women are risking arrest, the loss of their jobs and the loss of their children to challenge the driving ban.
From the Facebook group called Teach me how to drive so I can protect myself:
Yaa Rabb!! Protect yourselves KSA Sisters! Lock your doors, take videos, wear spiked heels while driving! Practice your self defense moves against any aggressors. DON'T GET OUT OF YOUR CAR! Make them tow you. STOP ALL TRAFFIC IN ALL OF KSA!! MEN OF KSA-SUPPORT YOUR WOMEN! REMEMBER WHERE YOU CAME FROM, YOUR MOTHER'S WOMB!! YAA RABB!
This is a Serious Stand, and we should All Salute the Courage, i live in the neighborhood and my Sister go to Work on they Own and we Respect That " Trust " which is been Asked There !
You can change the world, Manal. Freedom to all women of the world!!
One of the campaigners, Wajeha al-Huwaider, has described Saudi Arabia as "the world's largest women's prison."
Man, do I hope what we're seeing is the beginning of the world's largest prison break.
