“Saudi Women taking the wheel” campaign in progress – rpmGo.com

A few days ago we have written about the Online Campaign for Saudi Woman’s “right to drive” , initiated by Manal al Sharif. For the moment, the campaign is in progress, and several videos and online reports already talk about dozens of women participating to the campaign so far. They all protest against the world’s only gender-specific driving ban.

The tragicomic situation is that during the first day of protest, police has stopped one of the cars and gave the woman driver a ticket for not having a license, even though she had two international driver licenses.

Even if this seems to be a long-term struggle, Saudi women effort deserves to be appreciated. And maybe it will not take that much until they get the driving right in their country.

So, do you stand for the campaign?
