A prominent Saudi prince has questioned the law prohibiting women from driving. Amid turmoil in neighboring countries in every direction, countries that aren't yet under siege from the inside have been looking at making concession to keep the populace content.
Allowing women to drive may seem like a relatively small issue, but it is one Saudi women are adamant about. They are also calling on King Abdullah to allow women to participate in municipal elections. Granting women the right to drive may simply be the first in a series of equality dominoes. Give people a small taste of freedom, and they want the whole pie.
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal made an argument for allowing women to drive that feels right at home here in America. If women can drive their own cars, the country can get rid of some 750,000 foreign drivers.
