Female protesters in Saudi Arabia are driving publicly and posting videos and photos online.
A controversial law banning Saudi Arabian women from driving is now drawing laughs around the world thanks to a hit new song in both the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.
"No Woman, No Drive," a satirical tune playing on Bob Marley's "No Woman, No Cry" lampoons the Islamic kingdom's ban on female drivers and the justifications offered by it backers.
Wearing a ghutra headdress and robe, comedian Hisham Fageeh duplicates and layers his a cappella vocals. One version of himself uses a scratchy beard as a rhythmic shaker.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZMbTFNp4wIFageeh's suggestion that women's ovaries are unsafe behind the wheel of a vehicle, however, are not actually off base from what at least one conservative Saudi Arabian cleric has claimed.
Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-Lohaidan, a judicial adviser to an association of Gulf psychologists according to Reuters, argued women need to put "reason ahead of their hearts, emotions and passions."
"If a woman drives a car, not out of pure necessity, that could have negative physiological impacts as functional and physiological medical studies show that it automatically affects the ovaries and pushes the pelvis upwards," he told sabq.org.
"That is why we find those who regularly drive have children with clinical problems of varying degrees," he added.
