Woman Trying to Drive Father To Hospital Arrested By Saudi Police


A Kuwaiti woman arrested in al-Khafji, a small Saudi town close to the border of Kuwait, is still in custody “pending investigations” after illegally operating a motor vehicle. Her father, suffering from diabetes, could not drive and had to be taken to the hospital for urgent treatment.

Kuwaiti women do not face as many restrictions as their Saudi counterparts. Women are eligible for jobs as judges, officers, and royal guards, and are by law equal to men. Also, they can drive their diabetic fathers to the hospital as they damn well please.
