In Impromptus today, I talk about Manal al-Sharif, the Saudi heroine who drove a car and posted a video of herself doing so. This bought her a lot of trouble, as you can imagine. Impromptus this week, and at least some of next, will be devoted to an “Oslo Journal,” reporting from the Oslo Freedom Forum, held last week.
While in Oslo, Sharif, again, drove a car — no big deal to you and me, a very big deal to her and millions of others. There was a delightful picture of her on the front page of Aftenposten, the major paper in Norway. Thought you would like to see it: here.
Anyway, will have more to say about Manal al-Sharif and interesting others in due course . . .
