Manal al-Sharif: Daring to Drive: A Saudi Woman's Awakening

By Sydney Writers' Festival

Manal al-Sharif caused a sensation in Saudi Arabia when she was arrested after posting a YouTube video of herself driving. Daring to Drive is the powerful memoir of how she became the unexpected leader of a radical feminist movement in her ultraconservative homeland. Now a prominent voice for women’s rights in the Arab world, Manal has spoken at the United Nations and Harvard University. She joins Jamila Rizvi to talk about her remarkable journey. SWF podcasts are also available on iTunes and Spotify.
