There's a country song somewhere in this...
Uh oh, it looks like someone has finally informed the wacky ladies of FEMEN how women are treated in Saudi Arabia. The good news is, once again we have arrived at an issue to which both left-wing Ukranians and right-wing Virginians can agree: Saudi women should not be deprived of the ability to drive cars. Heaven knows there's enough wide open desert over there that'll keep them from doing too much damage!
(And just to be clear, that last line was a joke. I am, in all honesty, the worst driver in history.)
I will say, I'm amused to see FEMEN partially adopt Saudi attire. The irony of it all really is too much to handle. And really, my hat is off to AP stringer Sergei Chuzavkov for posting the most... creative shot in this series. This composition captures the spirit of FEMEN perfectly... Which is convenient, seeing that it's the only clearly safe-for-work photo to boot!
