It’s a well known fact that women in Saudi Arabia are denied a whole host of unalienable rights, including the right to drive.

Now, a Saudi Arabian historian claims that the ban on women drivers protects them from being raped.

I love the reaction of the host. She is trying to be professional, but she is obviously laughing at the sheer ridiculousness of this man’s statements.

Rape is still a world wide crime. It doesn’t matter where a women lives, how she lives her life or what she does to occupy her day.

His statements are an excuse to keep women out of the schools and out of the workplace.

Uhm…. no
