Saudi Women Would Rather Drive Than Vote


Many Saudi women are unimpressed with their new voting rights, and say they really need the right to drive. One tells NBC,

I don’t think that voting in a process where we can’t effect change is a big deal at all. It sounds a lot more glamorous than it is because at the end of the day, even our men aren’t bothered with these councils or their elections. I read somewhere that only a fifth of registered voters even bothered showing up, so this is all a bit of a show with no real substance at all. Give me a day as king and I will show you what real progress is all about.
