A while back I wrote an article about women in Saudi being allowed to legally drive (read here) and regardless of the heated petition against it; 4 women decided to take matters into their own hands and drive.Though no specific Saudi law bans women from driving, women are not issued licences. Powerful clerics who hold far-reaching influence over the kingdom’s ruling monarchy enforce the ban. Clerics warn that “licentiousness” will spread if women drive.

I stumbled on a hilarious video from Alaa Wardi in collaboration with Fahad Albutairi and Hisham Fageeh and thought I would share. Great way to lighten such a heated topic in the region.
