Another brave woman

This time, in Saudi Arabia:

The women at first thought they had been kidnapped by terrorists. The two men however, said they were religious police.

It might have gone down as just one more excess of zealousness by the forces charged with upholding Islamic modesty, except that Umm Faisal, the senior of three women, did something that is believed unprecedented in Saudi Arabia: She went to court.
Via Eteraz, who also has an interesting post up about the optimistic origins of Pakistan.
