Ten lashes with a whip
I cannot believe it. The Globe and Mail had it at the front page. While the king hands women of Saudi Arabia the right to vote, two days later, a young woman is sentenced yo ten lashes with a whip for driving a car. This happened just 48 hours after King Abdullah announced to his Shura Council of advisers that henceforth women shoud have the right to stand for office and to nominate candidates in future municipal elections. Meanwhile a Court convicted a saudi woman of driving without government permission and sentenced her to ten lashes with a whip, the most serious punishment ever given for the offence . Her name is Shaima Ghassaniya and she is in her 30s.
