Manal al-Sharif is a Saudi activist who co-founded and led the #Women2Drive movement to challenge the ban on women driving in her country. Despite being arrested and imprisoned for "driving while female" in 2011, she has continued campaigning for #Women2Drive and #IAmMyOwnGuardian to end male guardianship in her country.
Join Asia Society and the World Affairs Council of Greater Houston for a conversation with Manal on her personal story, the state of women in her home country and abroad, and the changes underway due to the effects of fearless activists. [Organizer's description]
