Default Sex Discrimination

Is it just me or does anybody else feel aggrieved that a woman in the UAE requires a Letter of No Objection from her husband in order to take driving lessons. Another example of the country still belonging in the Middle Ages whilst striving to create the impression of being modern.

I wasn't aware of that, but then I don't know many women who don't actually drive. They say you have to have a no objection letter to open a bank account as well, but I didn't need one. It is so degrading I have to say.
