Saudi Woman Drives a Car, Gets Arrested
Manal Al-Sharif, a Saudi woman who defied the defacto ban on women driving a car in Saudi Arabia and posted video of the nefarious act on Youtube, was arrested this weekend for her driving, in spite of the fact that it is technically not illegal for Saudi women to drive. Al-Jazeera English reported on the incident.
Women in Saudi Arabia are not allowed to drive or take public transportation. That’s right, they can’t even ride in the back of the bus.
