Women drivers of Saudi Arabia

Female Saudi motorists speak to the media after driving their vehicles in defiance of the ban on driving in Riyadh, June 22, 2011. Saudi Arabia has no formal ban on women driving. But as citizens must use only Saudi-issued licences in the country, and as these are issued only to men, women drivers are anathema. REUTERS/Fahad Shadeed
