Saudis Weigh In on Women Drivers
Posted on Sep 20, 2007
As a group of women in Saudi Arabia mobilize to petition the government to lift its ban on female drivers, fellow Saudis give their opinions on the issue in this interview roundup by the BBC.
If the current government were strong enough they could make it happen, but I don’t think they want to. They are frightened of being accused of deviating from Islam.
Every time they are asked about it, they say it will come naturally. But if we lived in a natural society, women would have been driving as soon as cars began.
There was no problem with women riding camels and donkeys in the past. What’s wrong with cars?
