One of the faces of the women's driving movement, Samia El-Moslimany, answers questions in the video above on CCTV America.
The women's driving issue here in Saudi Arabia continues to remain in the forefront of the news. Women across the country continue to defy the ban. Some have been detained, while others have driven without any problems.
One thing is clear: the women are not backing down. With the expulsion of thousands of undocumented foreign male drivers from Saudi Arabia this year, there is a driver shortage. With more and more Saudi women entering the work force, transportation issues for women have become more than just a mere inconvenience.
I would love to see the Saudi men of this country forbidden to drive for just one week and see how they like it. Maybe then more of them would be more sympathetic and supportive to the cause instead of being more concerned about relinquishing the control this driving ban gives them over women.
