    An Angry Woman: Saudi Activist Manar Alsharif Shares Her Story of Defiance and Liberation

    Manar Alsharif was angry.

And despite her age and accomplishments, Alsharif was still forced to hire a male driver if she wanted to avoid walking. In Saudi Arabia, while not technically illegal, it is socially unacceptable for women to drive.
