Manal al-Sharif is a woman who lives in Saudi Arabia, a place where women are not allowed to drive. During one of her moments of burning her brothers American tapes, she listens to a Blackstreet Boys song Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely. In that moment, Al-Sharif realized that she was lonely and isolated. In the summer of last year, Al-Sharif uploaded a video showing her driving a car in the streets of Saudi Arabia. A day later she was detained and was in jail for nine day. In the next month, other women got together and protested by driving. Now, women of Saudi Arabia are trying to produce change in their country.
