Saudi officials are aghast as a shocking video of a Saudi woman on the Internet. The outcry would make one believe it was a snuff film or pornographic movie. In fact it is even more salacious: it shows Wajeha Al-Huwaider driving. The video below should raise awareness of the subclass status of women in the Kingdom, including a prohibition on their driving.
Saudi human rights activist Wajeha al-Huwaider has been continually harassed and arrested for her effort for achieve equal rights for Saudi women.
She is a member of the group Human Rights First in Saudi Arabia, the country’s only independent human rights group. The Saudi government refused to license the group.
The video is worth watching to remind the world that there is a place where women cannot travel freely and live under medieval legal conditions.
