Don't try to control our lives, say Saudi women

Arab News writer Rima al-Mukhtari interviewed young Saudi women about their attitudes toward change, and one of the issues they focused on was their desire to have the right to drive.

Most relevant quote from the article,

"One of our simple rights is to be able to drive to college. I don’t understand why it’s prohibited for us to be in the driving seat,” said 22-year-old Zakeyya Ghulman. “I’m sick and tired of the driver being late and busy with all the work my family is giving him — dropping my mom off at the doctor,  picking up my sister from school. I keep waiting for him for hours.”
