  1. Woulds’t that we here could be so brave. I am in awe of these women.
    They will win in the end; but we’ll suffer in our cowardice, infinitely longer…

  2. Perhaps Saudi women should take a page from Aristphanes’ fifth century BC Greek play “Lysistrata,” in which Lysistrata persuades the women of Greece to withhold sexual privileges from their husbands and lovers until they negotiate an end to the Peloponnesian War. Saudi Women could withhold sexual privileges from their husbands until they agree to allow them to have driving privileges.

      • Brian,

        Trying to make a snark comment but sadly…. yes they were pretty much locked in their houses.

        Athenian women were clearly second class citizens and were though to be boring/ lesser human beings by men. Thus the pederasty and male to male love.

        In fact men who were not interested in homosexual love used to get mistresses from Ionia across the Aegean.

        Hope this helps your dichotomous world of East vs. West.

        Cheers!
