Fighting Peace with Violence
A group of women in Saudi Arabia have planned to protest the country’s restriction on women drivers, by taking to the driver’s seat on June 17th.
A counter-campaign has been launched on Facebook calling for men to beat Saudi women who drive their cars during the protest. The page is called “The Iqal Campaign: June 17th Preventing Women from Driving.” Iqal is the Arabic name for the cord used to hold on the traditional headdress worn by men in the region, calling for the cord to be used to beat women who dare to drive.
