Violence Is Always The Solution
In reaction to this act of rebellion, an "Iqal Campaign" has been organized on Facebook (an iqal is the black cord used to hold in place the traditional headscarf worn by Saudi men): men are invited to stand along the itinerary of the women who will participate in a driving rally planned for June 17th, to intercept them and whip them with iqals. After all, like they say in Saudi Arabia, a woman driving a car is like a fish on a bicycle*.
And if that doesn't work, I suppose the next step would be to stone those uppity women. That will learn them!!
* Just kidding. Actually, female fish are not allowed to ride bicycles in Saudi Arabia.
