Women who live in Saudi Arabia are not allowed to drive, solely for the reason that they have vaginas.

Saturday, women across the region staged a driving protest wherein at least 14 of them were fined for doing so, according to police.

Six women in the capital of Riyadh were stopped and fined $80 for driving, while at least eight others were stopped in different areas of the country.

The Riyadh protestors were forced to sign a pledge stating that they will respect the kingdom’s laws; their male guardians were forced to sign it as well.
