in Riyadh! Maha drove a Hummer with her face covered: "Reporting from Beirut— She got her driver's license in Indiana. She likes to drive fast.
And on Friday, Maha Qahtani, 39, in a face-covering niqab, raced through the streets of Riyadh in her family's blue Hummer H3, defying Saudi Arabia's religion-inspired bans on female motorists.
In all, nearly three dozen Saudi women got behind the wheels of various vehicles Friday, human rights activists said, in what was billed on social networking websites as a day of defiance against the ultra-conservative kingdom's longstanding driving decrees."
