A Story Of Extraordinary Courage


A few days ago, I listened to a 30-minute radio interview that made me gasp.

It was about Madeha Al Ajroush, a social activist who lives in Saudi Arabia, a country that, until recently, didn’t allow women to drive. In fact, Saudi Arabia was the only country in the world that banned female drivers.

For 27 years, Madeha al-Ajroush has been campaigning for women to be allowed to drive. In 1990, she and 46 other Saudi women dismissed their drivers and drove their cars in downtown Riyadh. “We just drove the car,” Madeha said. “It was exhilarating. It was great.”

In 2011 she was put in jail for driving a car. Her husband was the only person allowed to sign her out of prison.

He was furious with her.

She told him, “If you choose not to sign me out of prison, that’s OK. I’m OK staying in prison. It’s a choice I’ve made. I’m passionate about this and will continue doing this.”

Madeha won her battle as women in Saudi Arabia will legally be allowed to drive later this year.

I gasped with awe at Madeha’s courage.

The courage to fight for what she believed in, whatever the consequences.

She had her big Why and nothing was going to stop her.

What would it be like to have a courageous mindset like Madeha?

What would be possible that seems unthinkable now?
