I just don't get it.

What are they worried about? That they'll be so emboldened with the privilege that they'll... what? Get a job?

Or that a woman's place is in the home and not... behind a wheel? Grocery shopping?

I've always wondered this. Why is it more 'tznius' for a lady to have to call a cab then drive herself around?

A woman should not be seen outside of her home. Driving a car provides too many opportunities for a woman to enter situations  where a man who isn't her husband may catch a glimpse of her.

No one said "aren't any" it is still a small minority. It was said relative to this thread. We are looking to understand the part of society that has brought the no woman at all into our publications don't let their women drive. They are not properly represented here.

Because women are bad drivers.

Simple as that.

If that were the reason, I think I'd understand it better  ;D

What about DDF, do you think women should be allowed here as well? When does it end? You start with a car and pretty soon you end up with women taking control of everything, אין לדבר סוף.

והתורה חסה על ממונן של ישראל.

Can we add some race based driving comments?

To answer the thread title question, they haven't yet received the psak from Saudi Arabia allowing women to drive.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Members have messaged me that they have what to say on these topics, but are scared to comment in case others know who they are and wouldn't like what they are reading.

I'd assume that applies here as well.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

So... not only can the wives (or, if the wives are on DDF, themselves) not drive, but if they comment on the situation, they'll be ostracized from the community that imposes the prohibition on driving?

I see an easy solution here...
