Support the Right of Saudi Arabian Women to Drive
In 2008, Saudi Arabian officials promised to allow women the right to drive a car by the end of the year. That promise was broken. The same promise was made to Saudi Arabian women during this year's Arab Spring, but that promise has not yet been kept. In the meantime, Saudi Arabian women are beginning to defy authorities, and getting behind the wheel. While 20% of Saudi Arabian women work, hiring drivers takes a good chunk of their salary.
June 17th has been chosen as the day that Saudi women will get behind the wheel en masse, but their facebook page was removed and one of the activists arrested. Of course, the movement has a blog, written by a lady in Boston who lived in Saudi Arabia for many years.
