Several Saudi women risked arrest by taking part in a protest against a ban on females driving on October 26. They got behind the wheel and posted videos online of themselves doing so.
Others who had planned to take part, however, stayed home after the government warned of prosecutions and punishments. Several activists said they received threatening phone calls telling them not to participate.
Women across Saudi Arabia have taken to their cars in defiance of a ban against female drivers. Two leading Saudi women drivers Aziza Al Yousef and Madeha Al Ajroush talk to Krishnan. .
