The Right To Drive

Em D, a female Muslim blogger, cheers on the the women of Saudi Arabia:

That distant dream on the horizon of a Saudi Arabia without sexual harassment, with proper traffic laws, of a Saudi Arabian society that does not demean women, that respects them as the Qur'an, the God they claim to follow does: "Never will I turn away from the deeds of any of you, male or female; you are of one another" (3:195) – will be just that, a distant dream, until we women of Saudi Arabia have the courage to stand up and demand our God-given rights. And when we do, God be with those who refuse us…

The Guardian is live-blogging the day's #Women2Drive events.
