    Not allowed to drive...NO WAY!


    I cannot imagine not being able to drive. Driving means survival...mental, physical and emotional well being. I live in suburbia and by definition it means having a car to drive you to the store, gym, friends or anyplace you want or need to go. If I had to walk to these places I would have to walk along a very busy highway with no sidewalks or anything suitable next to this busy road. There is no metro service as far out as I live. So a car and driving is a necessity for me.


    I empathize with the women of Saudi Arabia. It is control by men to not allow the women to drive forcing them to stay home or hire expensive means of transportation. This is nothing more than a form of slavery and should be abolish.


    Why have women always been the choice of abuse or servitude throughout history.


    This has to end! All women should have their freedom including being able to drive.
