Sydney demonstration: Uprisings in the Muslim world 2011 [Jan 31 2011]

The little things in life are the ones that mean the most.

In the recent uprisings around the world, mainly in the Middle Eastern world what will be remembered the most?

Will it be the ousting of leaders from Tunsinia, and Egypt? Or perhaps the carnage still being felt from the uprisings in Yemen and Syria?

These are the most common and heard of revolts that are set in place to the course of the Arab world for now on.

However what of the personal gains and rewards that have come from the protests. The protests that were made public but on a smaller scale was that of the women in Saudi Arabia who have only one goal in mind, and that is to drive.

The nation of Saudi Arabia is a financially strong state that provides income and stability for their nation however inspired by the protests in the region women want their simple civil rights upheld.

This want of rights has been a progressive step forward for the very conservative nation. Women everyday must by law be driven around by a personal driver who of course is a man.

This is the Rosa Parks civil liberties movement that can ignite a new generation in the country.

At the end of all the smoke and carnage from the Arab Spring governments will be made and change will be felt. The most significant however could be from the more unlikely source of the protest for womens rights to drive in Saudi Arabia.

This has many implication when it comes to the outcome of events that could be unrolled through this action. A questioning of the leadership within the nation is at the top of this list.

The questioning of the male dominated world will shake the foundations of conservative laws in the country.

The simple protest of a woman driving knowing she will go to jail shows that change is needed and on a peaceful scale it can be attained.

It is not a new shuffle of political leadership but the rights of gender equality that can usher in the nation of Saudi Arabia into the 21st century.

The women of today will show the younger generation forward that it is ok to voice your opinion and today’s law will be tomorrows norm.

Hopefully from this fire igniting of women’s rights to drive maybe a call will be made for more simple civil liberties within a peaceful means. The equality of gender that has been clouded by religion, culture, and tradition will be questioned and human rights will remain standing among the rubble.
