Quotes:

There are so many children and women around the world that live in horrible conditions. That is simply unacceptable.

I am ready to drive a car in Saudi Arabia as soon as the ban on women drivers is lifted. I have an international driver's license, and I drive a car in all the countries I travel to. (Women in Saudi Arabia are currently banned from driving because of the risk of creating “sinful temptation”; the ban should be lifted by the beginning of the 2012).
