Women will be allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia from next week. Many of those with foreign driving licences have already converted them. It’s part of a wider government reform plan but arrests of reformists continue. Now there’s a video showing the first female bikers in the kingdom.
The video is in Arabic – the words of the interviewees are translated below:

“I’m telling you in brief you feel free when you’re riding a bike.”
“It’s a chance for us girls. We deserve it and we’re grateful for it.”
“Thank God this law was passed that allows us to sit behind a wheel.”
“We’ve waited for this moment for a long time. My little dream was realized today. We now have driving centers in Saudi Arabia for cars and motorbikes.”
