Saudi women drove legally for the first time tonight. But these women who campaigned for the right to drive can’t celebrate because they’ve been thrown in jail. By

Relevant question: In the years since, how many experiments in other countries and contexts have replicated the results?

She thinks a restaurant refusing to serve her is persecution but ripping refugee children away from their families with no plans for reunification isn't. This is the most white privileged thing I've ever seen (today).

With the kids in the back - great to see women driving in Saudi. But not to forget that several of those who campaigned for this remain in prison.

Some women are now driving, but the female activists that fought for the change are in prison. The Economist may want to tone the enthusiasm down a peg or seventy for the minute.

The regime have no tolerance for courageous women with free & intellectual integrity who want genuine change and gender equality. This is why they are still silencing, harassing and detaining women's rights activists

Did King Salman has suddenly become committed feminists or gender equality advocates? Or are there other reasons behind this move? - read my op-ed explaining the motives behind lifting the driving ban on women

Cryptocurrencies will become truly mainstream when they provide complete solutions for places where the existing financial system has already broken down, rather than catering for speculators in developed economies with ICOs.

What if refusing to serve Sarah Sanders was not the first step on a slippery slope to rampant political discrimination in restaurants and shops and instead was a reasonable of act of civil disobedience against an administration that has violated all norms?

Saudi Arabia sent flowers to New Zealand PM after she gave birth, but the bouquet was so big it did not fit in her hospital room (via ) 💐

Never ever forget or forgive who did everything in his power to deny free Syrian anti aircraft defense , in essence allowing Assad & Iran & Russia to commit the worst atrocity of the 21st century & creating the worst refugee crisis since WW2

"There is no doubt that the ideas of Mohammed bin Salman led to this great result" he tells his young daughters. Meanwhile the women who campaigned for it sit in prison.

For people who are saying that there's no pressure made to bring the issue into the political agenda, I would say: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has"

Like many other women who took a public stand despite the risks, I changed, facing patrrchiy & authoritariansim on a personal level makes you value those powerless advocates for rights tremendously
