I wasn't aware that it was actually illegal for women in Saudi Arabia to drive, but I'm glad these brave women are standing up to government tyranny.

    Why aren't the men standing with them? Hmmmm mayhap they're part of that tyranny. No?

      Probably, yeah. It's always refreshing to see men standing up for women's rights, but most often it seems like women have to stand alone... =/

        Maybe so long as they keep wearing their head scarves (and other crap) the men won't mind them driving so much. (Oh god...I can't believe I just said that... THEY HAVE BIGGER PROBLEMS THAN DRIVING! The men, for one!)
