Aziza Al Yousef

Al-Yousef is a well-known advocate of the struggle to end the ban on women driving in Saudi Arabia. The computer science university lecturer has driven numerous times and was arrested for doing so in November 2013. That same month she had an audience with Saudi’s Interior Minister, Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, via teleconference in which she conveyed a message to end the driving ban. Her next step is to try to reach ruler King Abdullah with a letter featuring thousands of signatures in support of ending the ban.
