Women Drivers in Saudi Arabia
John at Crossroads Arabia has an interesting piece on the fact that, contrary to Western perception, women actually do drive cars in Saudi Arabia:
The fact is that many Saudi women do drive, especially in rural areas. They donÃ¢€™t drive in urban areas, where theyÃ¢€™re likely to be harrassed by others, be they police, religious poliice, or officious civilians.
This is another front on which women are pushing, in their own ways, to get the society at large to realize that a driverÃ¢€™s license is not synonymous with a license to sell sex.
Of course, as Rusty Shackleford suggests, the fact that this is even news is rather telling.
