Those libertine Kuwaitis are at it again. A Kuwaiti woman was arrested in Saudi Arabia for the offense of driving her ailing diabetic father to a hospital. She was promptly arrested even though there is no formal law against women driving in Saudi Arabia. Women are allowed to drive in Kuwait and recently some women protested by driving in Saudi Arabia though some fear retaliation.
Only under the medieval standards of Saudi Arabia would Kuwait appear a bastion of feminism.
The Kuwaiti woman had just crossed the border to the hospital when police stopped her. She explained that her father needed medical attention but she was still arrested. Her father could not drive but it appears to be moral to let your father die rather than drive as a woman in Saudi Arabia.
