Beating Women Drivers?

Posted on | May 26, 2011 | 9 Comments

Strange news from Saudi Arabia:

A campaign has been launched on Facebook calling for men to beat Saudi women who drive their cars in a planned protest next month against the ultra-conservative kingdom’s ban on women taking the wheel.
The call comes as activists are demanding the release of Manal al-Sharif, a Saudi woman who was jailed for defying the ban.

This is crazy. If you ban women from driving, how is your wife supposed to go buy you more beer during the football game?
