In Honor of Those Who Drove in 1990

Just came across this on the facebook page We Are Supporting Manal al-Sharif. Wonderful video by Sarah Jaber. It's a tribute to the brave women who dared to drive in 1990. It is very moving and actually lists the names of the women who drove. There are many PhD's among them. The first part is a recollection of the event, the second part is the tribute.

  1. Hello. I'm a lady in the United States, and have been following and inspired by all your efforts to keep driving. I know driving is risky for you, and I admire your bravery. I was excited to learn that you are fighting for the right to drive, and dismayed at the hostile reaction of your government. Nevertheless, I hope your courage and persistence wins. You are wonderful, or as we always exclaim in the states, awesome! :-)
