Girls having fun in Saudi Arabia...

... in oppressive male dominated, macho societies, women must eventually start to make the changes to achieve liberation. What better example of change that needs fostering and support and exposure than an all female rock band in Saudi Arabia...more here...WTF would Osama bin Laden think ? and who gives a falalfel ?
...They cannot perform in public. They cannot pose for album cover photographs. Even their jam sessions are secret, for fear of offending the religious authorities in this ultraconservative kingdom.
But the members of Saudi Arabia’s first all-girl rock band, the Accolade, are clearly not afraid of taboos.
The band’s first single, “Pinocchio,” has become an underground hit here, with hundreds of young Saudis downloading the song from the group's MySpace page. Now, the pioneering foursome, all of them college students, want to start playing regular gigs — inside private compounds, of course — and recording an album...
Listen to their single, here on MySpace...go girls go !
