Saudi Women Negotiating Power in the Public Space
A myriad of factors and negotiations contributed to the removal of the ban on women driving, including women who continuously negotiated power and space to change existing political, social, and gender norms, despite often being faced with fierce public resistance. In Saudi Arabia, women’s educational progress, increased labor participation, and enhanced networks produced substantive needs for convenient, reliable, and affordable transportation. In this chapter, Namie Tsujigami attempts to illuminate women’s agency, strategy, and accommodation by focusing on Saudi women’s fight for the freedom to drive, the backlash, and its impact on government policies.
