Whip lashes for woman for driving

A woman in Saudi Arabia has been sentenced to 150 whip lashes and nine months in prison because she was driving a car. The Islamic country is the only country in the world where women cannot drive.

Although it is forbidden for women to drive, they still regularly get behind the wheel. As protests, they make videos and put them on social media like Facebook.
