There Are Still Places Where...

...women can't drive a car, and you can forget about voting. One of those places is Saudi Arabia. Boing Boing posts a video of a woman who recorded herself driving in 2008 so she could a) inspire other women and b) avoid punishment by spreading her video internationally so there would be pressure in Saudi not to cane or honor-kill or whatever other stupid thing Islam would demand that people do.

Why is it that religion is so often bad news for women?
