    I want what's rightfully mine by islam, and islam doesn't forbid driving or sport for women.

    Just for today, I would like to celebrate and applaud inclusion of Saudi women in the Olympics without critiquing the Saudi government. This is an historic first for Saudi women and for Saudi Arabia. Carrying the Olympic torch IS itself a way to move forward to full equality. Taking the time to celebrate each and every small step … to give celebration space … also enlivens our spirits to keep on keeping on. Just for today, let us celebrate our strength and power as women and men working for equality. When the Olympics end, we will take our enlivened spirits forward with our announcement that as our sisters and brothers return to Saudi Arabia, we walk together with them — side by side and shoulder to shoulder to support the campaign for women's right to drive and for full equality. Just for today, let us take time to celebrate the historic first Olympics that include women from every country participating.

    Islam is like most religions: irrelevant, violent and repressive. How I long for a world without religion.

    How can the coran forbid women from driving cars or do sport ?? niether one or the other were exixting at the time of mahomet ! think that is an invention of frutrated muslim males, not knowing to deal with women in any way but only by force
