To me it is amazing that we live in the 21 century and that women in Saudi Arabia are unable to drive. When I first heard about this I thought it was unfortunate but I honestly didn’t think too much into it. Until we studied it and read the articles and heard the different talks and it made me realize how hard it would be to not be able to drive. What is shocking to me is that women in Saudi Arabia have amazing jobs and are very smart however they are unable to drive. The most basic form of freedom is taken away from them. I though it was so sad that they have to deal with creepy men and so many issue just in order to get somewhere simple like work.
The ted talk we watched in class was very powerful. The women to drive movement is inspiring and shows how much power one person can have with the use of social media. It was amazing that a video of a women driving a car could change everything. I think that is what is very exciting about social media it gives the individual power. People are able to bring awareness to subjects that normally would not have light shed on them. This gives me hope and it makes me realize that we are so lucky in America and we are able to do so much with our creativity and social media and its time to make a change!!
