Saudi Arabia's Ban on Female Drivers - 22 Oct 2013
Recent and archive images of women driving cars in Saudi Arabia – the only country in the world where women are barred from driving.

A conservative Saudi Arabian cleric has said women who drive risk damaging their ovaries and bearing children with clinical problems, countering activists who are trying to end the Islamic kingdom's male-only driving rules. Debate about
the ban, once confined to the private sphere and social media, is increasingly spreading to public forums too.

Female driver Azza Al Shmasani alights from her car after driving in defiance of the ban in Riyadh June 22, 2011. Saudi Arabia has no formal ban on women driving. But as citizens must use only Saudi-issued licences in the country, and as these are issued only to men, women drivers are anathema. An outcry at the segregation, which contributes to the general cloistering of Saudi women, has been fuelled by social media interest in two would-be female motorists arrested in May.REUTERS/Fahad Shadeed (SAUDI ARABIA - Tags: TRANSPORT POLITICS SOCIETY) BEST QUALITY AVAILABLE
