7:43 am
ho london. holly, good morning. >> good morning. some saudi arabia women have been demanding the right to drive now for two decades. we went to saudi arabia to meet some of the women leading the driving campaign and we recognized driving is just a symbol of much bigger problems faced by saudi women. this is an anti-government demonstration. the ultra conservative islamic state is the only country in the world where women are banned from driving because the government refuses to give them licenses. in protest, dozens of saudi women have taken to the wheel and posted the evidence of their illegal road trips on the internet. during nearly two weeks in this closed off kingdom, we were accompanied by saudi officials
7:44 am
to interview the women behind the driving campaign, we left our hotel at night and met with them in a private house. madeha allage ruche is a woman we met with. >> police were in total shock. they thought we were women from kuwait or different parts of the world. we couldn't possibly be saudi women. saudi women are very quiet and they don't ask for their rights. >> reporter: she told us the biggest problem is the male guidance system. every saudi woman needs a male's approval to study, work, and travel outside the country. what's it like having a male guardian?

7:47 am
divide in saudi arabia between those people, both men and women, who want change and want progress on the one hand and then on the other, islamic conservatives who want to keep the status quo. and i think that this saudi government has not given women the right to drive is that they fear a backlash from those religious conservatives. norah? >> that's right, holly. that's my understanding of it too. although there is some in the royal family who would support such a move they're worried about the backlash from some of the religious conservatives in the kingdom. >> i hope that's true. she said, listen, it's the compassion. it's not the will. it's the when. great reporting. >> great reporting, holly williams. there's one place where women are gaining and that's on college campuses. >>
