This iReport is part of an assignment:
What if you weren't allowed to drive?
It's my choice
- zdan, CNN iReport producer
I used to love driving my car--driving my friends home after an evening together or blasting the stereo driving home from a long day at work.
Then I got a new job and a new home. Now my husband and I both live and work in the centre of Oslo. We can easily walk to work and we have all the shops we need close by. So we sold our car.
Now I don't drive. It's my choice. Don't get me wrong. Every once in a while--say, on holiday--we rent a car and I still love driving. And I want every other woman to be able to make the same choice.
I enjoy so many liberties and many of them I take for granted. My mother taught me how to drive. She also taught me to stand up for my rights and to cry out against injustice. My mom and I support Saudi Arabian women to drive their way to freedom.
