Saudi women renew push for the right to drive
In the six months since Saudi activists renewed calls to defy the kingdom's ban on female drivers, small numbers of women have gotten behind the wheel almost daily in what has become the country's longest such campaign.

 

Organizers are calling on more women to join in on Saturday, when President Barack Obama visits Riyadh. The activists say their long-term goal is not just to win Saudi females the freedom to drive, but to clear a path for broader democratic reforms. (AP)
