M.I.A. Takes on Saudi Stereotypes in Solidarity with Women to Drive Movement

February 14, 2002

Bad Girls’ is a song by Maya “M.I.A.” Arulpragasam, the British-Sri Lankan artist. The video, which was shot in Morocco, was created in solidarity with the women to drive movement of Saudi Arabia. It may be laden with crass stereotypes including prancing Arabian horses, automotive drifting (or tashfeet), reckless driving and even some ‘sandal skating’ but it’s still great fun to watch and as a result it has has garnered over 110 million hits worldwide.
