About Manal al-Sharif

Manal al-Sharif, co-founder, and Leader of Women2Drive, CEO, and Founder of Women2Hack Academy is one of the most eminent voices of the Women’s Rights movement in the Middle East. At the center of major policy, and political and societal debate involving women’s rights over the last seven years, Manal offers an enlightening look at the current state of women in Saudi society, told through her stories of fearless attempts to break through taboos.

Manal al-Sharif was hosted and interviewed by media fronts such as CNN, BBC, and France24 for her bold views and strong stands. Manal was awarded the Václav Havel Prize for Creative Dissent at the Oslo Freedom Forum, TIME magazine named her one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World”, and the United Nations Human Rights hailed her as “A Driving Force for Change”. She uses her leadership and social media experience coupled with her expertise in IT (she was the first female information security consultant in Saudi Arabia), to ignite social reform.

She speaks to inspire, empower and drive change and her TED talk attracted over 1.5 million views. Her Amazon best seller book ‘Daring to Drive: A Saudi Woman’s Awakening’ was ranked#4 by GoodReads Readers Choice Award as one of the best memoirs for 2017 and was listed as #1 book for the summer read by Oprah Magazine.
