Great piece in the New York Times today about how a woman in Saudi Arabia used YouTube to post a video of herself driving a car - an act of civil disobedience in a country where woman are not allowed to drive. Wajeha al-Huwaider, a Saudi women's rights activist, illegally drove her car for one minute along a public highway to protest in honor of International Women's Day.

Check out the article for a full report and to watch the video.
