#OsloFF in New York — Manal al-Sharif, Speaker
Manal al-Sharif first became a YouTube sensation after posting a video of herself driving a car - a legal offense for women in Saudi Arabia.
Then she came to the Oslo Freedom Forum in 2012 to accept the first Vaclav Havel International Prize for Creative Dissent, and everything changed. Since then, thousands of women have been inspired by her #OsloFF talk and Manal has campaigned around the world for Saudi women's rights, most recently publishing her memoir, "Daring to Drive," to international acclaim.
Hear Manal's story in person and join us at the Oslo Freedom Forum in New York on September 19.
