Excerpt:

Dr. Ali Alyami is a man after my own heart. He is a Saudi reformer who is based in Washington, D.C. and the founding director of the Center for Democracy and Human Rights in Saudi Arabia. Listen to what Dr. Alyami just told me:

“Democratizing Saudi Arabia is the key to democratizing all Arabs and Muslims. The best, easiest, cheapest and quickest way to achieve this formidable undertaking is to empower Saudi women who are already in the forefront in challenging their ferocious political, religious, economic, social and educational environment.

Empowering Saudi women will resonate throughout Arab and Muslim societies.”
