Manal al-Sherif, who became the symbol of a campaign launched last year urging Saudi women to defy a driving ban, began spreading the information on Twitter, after she was alerted by a couple.

Well, you wouldn't want them to get a secular education (or education of any kind, for that matter), have freedom to choose what they will do with their life, and all sans bee-keeper costume. Allah (piss be upon him) forbid.

Four words:

Big Brother for women ... and no great surprised, implemented by and for the supposed benefit of men, their egos and their power trips.

Despicable.
