imposed upon us.”

“My scars teach me that I am stronger than what caused them.”
Manal al-Sharif, Daring to Drive: A Saudi Woman's Awakening

“My face is my identity. No one will cover it. I’m proud of my face. If my face bothers you, don’t look. Turn your own face away, take your eyes off me. If you are seduced by merely looking at my face, that is your problem.
Do not tell me to cover it. You cannot punish me simply because you cannot control yourself.”
Manal al-Sharif, Daring to Drive: A Saudi Woman's Awakening

“The rain begins with a single drop”

“My scars teach me that I am stronger than what caused them.”
Manal al-Sharif, Daring to Drive: A Saudi Woman's Awakening

“Extremism frequently turns its champions into angry people, driven by conflicting desires. At first, I pitied my less enlightened parents and siblings. Then I felt superior to them, poor sinners that they were. Then I lost patience with their unwillingness
to see the one true path and resorted to threats, intimidation, and yelling. At night, I was tormented by thoughts of what would happen to all us of when we reached our graves.”
