Women in Saudi Arabia are taking to the streets, literally, as they try to push past the ban on their driving. Though threatened by some government offficials with arrest or ticketing (welcome to the club!), women have not been deterred. In fact, it seems support has strengthened in momentum. It seems to be almost a cute story to the casual observer. But the freedom driving will provide Saudi women would be a sea change. Will this be the time the ban is lifted? If so, will it be a peaceful transition and as light as the latest from musician Alaa Wardi?
