Saudi Women Drivers

October 29, 2013 by  

Saudi Women Drivers, Sixteen Saudi Arabian females have been fined for driving after only a few dozen women braved the threat of punishment on the national protest day “Women’s driving is a choice” which took place on Saturday.

Online activists at first planned a global “drive-in” Saturday, but cancelled the campaign after threats from the government, instead declaring an open-ended campaign for those brave enough to drive. Some 60 women sat behind the wheel on Saturday according to the activists.

There were reports that women received threats from the Interior Ministry after the official warning that laws “will be applied against violators and those who demonstrate in support of this cause.”

On the day of the action, police stopped six women driving in Riyadh, and fined them 300 riyals each (about $80), the capital’s police deputy spokesman, Colonel Fawaz al-Miman told AFP.
