Saudi women's driving activist: 'I cried'

Saudi activist Manal al-Sharif, who was arrested in 2011 after a video of her driving a car went viral, says women have been campaigning for 27 years to be allowed to drive.

She says her act of civil disobedience had a "catastrophic" impact on her life. She was subjected to abuse, lost custody of her son and felt compelled to move abroad. She now lives in Australia.
