Muslim Driving School - First Eepisode

BBC2 recently aired Muslim Driving School, a programme set in the North of England and focussing on Muslim women trying to learn to drive. What the programme actually does is explore their lives - family, faith, marriage and the way they interact with the world. It was good to see a range of women; white and non-white, English, of Pakistani origin, young and old. In particular there were two older Pakistani women, one shy and one more vocal and it was good to see women from this group as often these are the ones whose voices are heard the least.
