My two cents on this whole issue...
I actually don't understand what the big deal is. Why not let women drive? Like in every other country. Being a girl in Saudi Arabia I can understand the frustration women feel. They cannot go out on their own, or perform simple tasks like grocery shopping or hospital visits without the help of a male. It is so frustrating to always have to depend on someone to do every little thing for you.
|This would be my carrrrr|
Either you hire a taxi or a private driver to drive you around or depend on your father, brother or husband to take you every other place. I'm sure all males in this country are fed up of driving their women around. I don't get the point of this ban. It's ridiculous.
On the other hand, I also fear for the general safety of women if the ban on driving is lifted. I feel like physical, verbal and sexual harassment against women will increase. A recent incident at a mall involving a group of women harassed by a huge group of men has made me really wonder what will happen when women start driving out, alone.
It seems like these men have never seen women. One man literally catches a woman with his hands who in return kicks him. This is just crossing the line. Too much!! You can read about it here -Dhahran harassment incident sparks outrage.
I was outraged after watching the video clip of this incident. This was physical and verbal assault on women in PUBLIC in broad daylight!! These are the issues that need to be dealt with very strictly.
I hope authorities punish these perverts in a way that sends a clear message that such behavior will not be tolerated.
If the ban is lifted, aren't you excited to drive?? I'm dying!! My car would be a hot pink jeep or a little truck lol.
There is a campaign against the 'against the ban on women driving'. Did you get me? This situation is so ironic.
So, let's see what happens.
Which side are you on? Yay or Nay to women driving?
