Women can Drive on Saudi City Streets.

The one place on this universe that has an abundance of oil and wealth, brings about change, where both are needed.

The women with their spouses in tow, will be at the car showroom buying up the latest “must have” accessory to go with the Abbaya , as long it’s black. Ford will be pleased.

Arabilluminist has a better description here

Perhaps the women in KSA have this woman and all others who risked their lives, to thank

Good luck ladies and enjoy the new found freedom!

Please take care, too!

  1. This is a remarkable in Saudi Arabia’s history, and a holiday for every woman on Saudi soil! Wajeeha Al-Huwaider -activist in the video- has done miracles which will never be forgotten.

    Through your blog, I would like to remind Saudi women that it is not the end but merely the beginning! They have to start making bigger steps to correct the way they are looked at and treated by male Saudis and their government, and they must insure abolishing all social and legal -corrupted traditions- which are mercilessly used to control them.

    Cheers,

    I wanted to write an article when I saw her driving, especially as she headed out of the city. But I was worried that if I did say something, the next thing I would find out is that she is dead.

    So I was really pleased to see your article.

    Agree with your sentiments.

    Thanks for having the courage, I lacked.

  4. Update [5:45pm E.T]: AlArabiya.net has deleted the news article in about 15 minutes of the original posting time! The news remain news, but it looks like they still can’t go public with their article yet..

    Good thing I translated the important points before it was removed..

    I am not surprised. I suppose we will have to wait till BBC and CNN have it out I’m off to bed, it’s 22:57 GMT (UK).
    Thank you for the update.
