One is tempted to ask , given that the Saudi Arabian regime is still controlled by primitive sexists who forbid women to drive cars, if there will be any driving instruction manuals featured in the ‘Focused Country’ section.
Last year activists also focused their demands on 26 October when four driving videos were posted on YouTube. At least 16 women were fined for taking the wheel on that day. Asked why more had not posted images of themselves this year, the activist said there was a “huge risk” for female drivers.
Women had previously been arrested, their cars confiscated and one received 100 lashes, she alleged.
So they can’t drive. Is that maybe because they are forced to wear those vile head-shrouds?
Makes it hard to identify hit n run culprits…
How about reading? Are women allowed to read what they want?
Is there ANY freedom for women in Saudi Arabia?
Who on earth decided to make a backward, barbaric country the ‘FOCUS’ of this expo?
