Saudi - Women Driving
CAIRO (AP) - A Saudi woman has been sentenced to be lashed 10
times with a whip for defying the Islamic kingdom's prohibition on
Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world that bans women
The prohibition is rooted in conservative traditions and
religious views that hold giving freedom of movement to women would
make them vulnerable to sins.
Activists say the religious justification is irrelevant.
A female member of Saudi Arabia's National Society for Human
Rights says that before there were cars, even Muhammad's wives rode
camels and horses.
