Video of the Day: Behind the wheel in Saudi Arabia

Saudi feminist activists have organized to defy the ban on women driving multiple times in recent years, and on October 26th they’ll be hitting the road en masse again.

More than 15,000 people have signed an online petition calling on the government to lift the ban and there are signs that the government may finally be ready to listen. Meanwhile, some women have been getting a headstart this week, and, as this heartwarming video shows, at least some of their fellow drivers seem to be welcoming them to the roadways.
