King Abdullah: Let The Women Drive

Posted: Updated:

Imagine what your world would be like if, simply because of your gender, you were not allowed to drive a car. Every day, you would have to rely on a male driver to take you anywhere you need to go - school, work, the grocery store. You must spend money every day to pay this driver. There is no way out of this, because in the country where you were born, women are not allowed to drive cars.

Such is the case for all the women living in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. But things are starting to change. On October 26, brave women across Saudi Arabia will defy the ban on driving and take the wheel.

As a woman, a race car driver, and someone who has visited the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, I feel very strongly that now is the time for this ban to end. That is why I partnered with Jordan Bloch (who donated his time) to make this video to spread awareness for these brave souls who will get behind the wheel this Saturday.

Please join me and honk for the women of Saudi Arabia. Post your videos, photos, and tweets and send the links to Let's show the women of Saudi Arabia that the world is listening!
