Rights are Not Given, They are Taken

Saudi activist Manal al-Sharif speaks to Emirates 24/7:

“The question should not be whether women will be ‘allowed because the Saudi Monarchy will never give away rights just like that,” she said.

“The question should be: will women ‘take’ the right to drive… my answer is yes, that right and bigger.. if they understand what led to losing their rights and stopped accepting their rights to being used by the system to please certain group of people in Saudi Arabia and here I mean religious establishment.. it’s up to women not them.. women don’t realize that yet.. once they do, they will win the struggle and set their own rules that everyone shall respect..”
