Clinton backs 'brave' Saudi women

Washington, June 21, 2011

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday praised "brave" Saudi women fighting for the right to drive in the kingdom, but said it was up to Saudi society to determine the way forward.

"What these women are doing is brave and what they are seeking is right, but the effort belongs to them. I am moved by it and I support them," Clinton said in her first public comments on the issue. - Reuters
