How is it possible for Saudi Arabia to allow women to vote and stand for political office while also disallowing them from driving a micra? Is there a single other nation in the history of the human race that has allowed women to vote and stand for office before allowing them to take to the steeeing wheel? What the feck is going on?

Well, if driving a Micra was the only option then, even I as a male, wouldn't want to drive

Perhaps their logic is that by giving these liberties, any hunger for other liberties will be calmed. A tiny proportion of women actually voted compared to men and I expect many families are privately pressuring their women not to participate and many women themselves probably believe they shouldn't.
