Eman Al Nafjan, Saudi blogger and activist got in a car earlier today and drove around the capital city of Riyadh to see what would happen.
This is in the wake of a campaign calling for women to defy the driving ban in Saudi in a protest drive on October 26 that has spread rapidly online over the past week and gained support from prominent women activists. The website has been blocked.
Al Nafjan, along with another lady driver spent half an hour driving in Riyadh and took pictures to document the entire road trip. They went to a hardware shop and shocked a man who wouldn’t believe they drove themselves.
They also passed by other drivers, police cars, passers by and say that no one really seemed to care that it was a woman who was driving.
Below is the video documenting her defiant drive around Riyadh.
