Yet another case of serendipity, applied to the internet in general and YouTube in particular.

I suppose we've all heard one way or another about the Saudi woman who dared to get behind the wheel and drive herself somewhere, rather than depend on some man.  Manal al-Sharif is that woman, and her TED talk tells the story of what happened and the reaction to it, as well as her own take on women in Saudi society and what has to happen for Saudi women to gain their rights.

Me 'at's off to Manal!  She is tough stuff and no mistake!
