No Woman, No Drive

I saw this today and thought it was great so I decided to share it with all of you.
Many of you have probably heard about some of the repressive laws against women in Saudi Arabia, and the limitations on driving are some of the most restrictive.
In recent months activists have begun staging demonstrations to protest these rules, despite violent threats from the Saudi religious police and enormous backlash from their communities.
This article and song show how despite this negativity there is growing support for change and equality.
Here’s to hoping these protests lead to lasting change and greater equality for everyone!
