October 26th Driving campaign expresses its deep concern for the recent arrests and detention of two women activists who drove their cars to the Eastern border of Albatha'a in Saudi Arabia. 

Saudi women’s rights activists Thursday posted photographs and videos of themselves behind the wheel on social media websites, defying a de-facto ban on women driving in the kingdom.

The social media flurry came two days after three female members of Saudi Arabia’s Shura Council requested that the issue be discussed in the forum.

According to Al Arabiya, the women who took part in Thursday’s campaign were welcomed by some onlookers.

One video posted on YouTube showed a Saudi mother capturing footage of her daughter “Azza” driving a car.
