Aziza Al Yousef, an activist working to end the female driving ban in Saudi Arabia, has been named to the top of the list of Gulf Business Magazine's list of the World's 100 Most Powerful Arabs in their February 2014 issue. Here is what they wrote about her. The magazine is available on newsstands in the Gulf region.
Al-Yousef is a well-known advocate of the struggle to end the ban on
women driving in Saudi Arabia. The computer science university lecturer
has driven numerous times and was arrested for doing so in November
2013. Her next step is to try to reach ruler King Abdullah with a
letter featuring thousands of signatures in support of ending the ban.
Congratulations to Ms. Al Yousef.
