Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world where women are not allowed to drive. They cannot get behind the wheel, and many activists want to change this fact, by increasing awareness abroad and also inside the country. On the 26. of October, many Saudi women have decided to express their right during the 'Women to Drive Day'. This initiative, which has a peculiar echo on the web and outside Saudi Arabia, does not please the Kingdom' authorities: they will intervene to dismantle the demonstration - and the religious authorities agree to this decision, saying driving for a women "increase the risk of having abnormal children".
