"Daring to Drive" by Manal al-Sharif first caught my attention when the author was on NPR's Fresh Air last year. Hearing her voice is inspiring through her leadership to encourage women to drive. What seems like a headscratcher for most is a fierce act of empowerment for women in Saudi Arabia. I am looking forward to listening to how her leadership contributes overall to the women's equality and right's movement the world is basking in.
I am still reading the "Night" trilogy by Elie Wiesel. I knew the book would take some time because it is three in one. So I am dutifully turning each page, educating myself on an extraordinary life whose words lift from the page.
