This book is essential reading for anyone, anywhere. It gives us a glimpse into what some of the plights Saudi women have to deal with on a day-to-day basis. There is a not so fine line of difference between the judicial and moral laws of that country and you will see examples in this bio. I applaud Manal Al-Sharif for her courage and all that she has accomplished thus far - but still has a ways to go. Like she said, "The rain starts with a single drop." Excellent read!
