sold-out program for manal al-sharif at krld studios

The Council's sold-out June 20 event with "Daring to Drive: A Saudi Woman's Awakening" author Manal al Sharif brought out an intergenerational audience - but especially young women inspired by Manal's story. Council members, Facebook friends and listeners of KRLD were uplifted, and Manal was equally delighted to meet them. 

Just before she went onstage, Ms. al Sharif was interviewed by KRLD NewsRadio 1080. Listen to that interview here.
