Saudi Arabia King Abdullah surprised everyone when he announced last week that Saudi women will be allowed to vote and run for office -- for the first time in history -- in the upcoming 2015 municipal elections.  It's a small step in a country where women need permission of a male relative -- husband, father, uncle, brother, even a son! -- in order to leave the country.  But Saudi women are rejoicing over this first step.  Here's a fascinating and RARE interview with a Saudi Princess who is openly advocating for more rights for women -- beginning with the right to drive.  Listen.
