When You Ban Women From Driving, They'll Not Only Defy You — But Record Songs Like This Too

In 2011 in Saudi Arabia, courageous women — supported by men and children — protested the ban on female drivers by getting behind the wheel and blaring out some bad-ass tunes. To celebrate and support the protest, Rotana Tarabzouni — a Saudi-raised, California-based singer — has recorded a song that I imagine would be one of those tunes they'd blare out of their cars when they protest. In a country where singing is restricted, this makes Rotana's protest song even more of a powerful statement for her sisters back at home.

To clarify: There's no formal law banning women from driving, but the nation refuses to grant licenses to women, and so they are essentially blocked from driving.

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.

The first few months after having a newborn are seriously stressful. It's tough to get any sleep and your entire schedule revolves around the needs of the baby.

It's expensive, too! It seems like you're constantly shelling out $25 for a box of diapers and $40 for a can of formula.

So it's understandable that a Facebook user who goes by the name of Chris Blaze asked for a deal when buying a Samsung washer and dryer set of a guy named Dave he met online.
