Saudi women have again defied laws set by the Saudi authorities that oppress women and have no basis in Islam (like many of their laws) – a ban on driving.

AFP reports a 20 year old Saudi women and her friend were injured in a car crash while out for a joy ride. 

The driving ban was formally established in 1990.  Recently, Saudi women activists have lobbied for a lift on the ban while some activists have also challenged authorities by taking to city streets in their cars.
