Saudi women want what is available to women in every other nation on earth: the right to a driver's license. A group of Saudi women will petition King Abdullah this week.
They hope to convince the King that this will not lead women down that slippery slope to evil. Many men in Saudi Arabia, and all of the Religious Police, are convinced that once Mama gets the car keys, it's only a short drive over to swearing, too much make-up, wild parties, and turning tricks on the side.
The government is unlikely to respond because the issue remains so highly sensitive and divisive. But committee members say their petition will at least highlight what many Saudis — both men and women — consider a "stolen" right.
In the Magic Kingdom, the old stereotype of "the woman driver" takes on new meaning.
