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.
