Saudi Princess Wants To Drive, Promises A Woman's Revolution


Fairy tales teach us that part of being a princess means having your dreams come true. Getting what you want. Princess Ameerah al-Taweel is gorgeous, rich, and owns a pet zebra. But her true desire? To be able to drive in her homeland of Saudi Arabia — and for other women to be able to drive as well.

Princess Ameerah (who is a a graduate of New Haven University with a degree in Business Administration) chooses not to wear a veil, is on the board of a humanitarian organization, and acknowledges that there are “other priorities” for women in Saudi Arabia besides driving: “Basic rights.” This morning on the Today show, she hinted that a woman’s revolution is coming to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia: “You’ll see a whole movement.”
