There is no any way to hide the true that Saudi Arabia is the only country that doesn’t allow women to be present at sport events in its stadiums…!
Manal al-Sharif created a fanpage named “Teach Me How to Drive So I Can Protect Myself”. This page was prohibited by the Saudi Arabian Authority. Furthermore her Facebook and twitter account was closed. Despite the Kingdom’s restriction, Manal’s followers made copies of the Facebook events page after her arrest as well as her online message regarding the June 17 protest have been featured online by news organizations such as Al Jazeera where they cannot be so effortlessly deleted. Manal was eventually released from prison on the condition that she ceases encouraging women to participate in the June 17 event. Heroism video of Manal al-Sharif is again available on YouTube.
