More on Najla al-Hariri, CNN and BBC Coverage on Women Driving

Below is a link to a CNN story in English from May 17, 2011 about women driving in Saudi Arabia. Several great interviews, wonderful footage. Best quote - "Rain always starts with a single raindrop."




I heard from a friend that BBC Radio did a story with a female journalist driving around with a Saudi woman at the wheel in Jeddah. If anyone finds the link to that story, please post it as a comment.

Also today, in the link below, is a story from the BBC about Najla al-Hariri, with her photo, the Jeddah mom who is out driving.

  2. Thank you, anonymous, for the link to the BBC Radio story. It's great! Najla says her daughters and her daughters' friends are proud of her. Add to that millions of women around the world.
