Small postive steps for Saudi women.


King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz's announcement that women are theoretically to be given the same opportunities for political participation as men is potentially the most important advance for Saudi women's rights in decades, and underscores the king's reformist stature

Thank you for the link -- I just read that story.  Brianna was smart to stick up for herself and not become a victim.

Just found this on the blog 'Get Your Boehner Out Of My Uterus' not knew but worthy of drawing attention to.

Yikes! I don't believe we are on the same page. Perhaps I was not very clear as your disection of my video rebuttal is not what I meant, at all. I apologize for your ruffled feathers--no need to belittle me. I suppose my point was that from a literary standpoint, I believe the authors did some great research (even with 'solutions' excluded). We hear impersonal figures about human trafficking (amongst other topics addressed) but the authors take you into the personal world of several women. I'm quite alright if you disagree with the value of the novel. No need to attack.

Ugh, I watched it. Thanks for sharing; however, I fail to see the point in this video. It seems it's her angry opinion to an article published prior to the book (no science in here, come on). Many of the arguments she is pushing are "liars" "liars". Kristof WuDunn did some amazing research but please don't accept ANY sort of literature as "word of the lord." {Haven't we already seen the detriment of that acceptance?}
This video spends a lot of time blowing air around about how sweatshops do not empower women--of course they don't. I'm quite sure the authors aren't saying "yes, sweatshops good. best thing to happen to women." But they are reaching out to their readers and challenging them to think about it a different way. And they absolutely are not saying that Imperialism ended footbinding. They are just showing that cultural taboos can be left in the past. Again, I think Taylor is taking this far too literally. Please don't forget to consider author's intentions. The Grimm's Fairy Tales were not written to desensitize children from guts and gore. Intentions aren't always written in the text.
Also, she spends some time telling us that the efforts Kristof WuDunn are pushing only further marginalize women in third world countries. But there's no specific example--can you tell us what you are talking about? Our authors give us many ways to get involved from simply staying informed or by searching out an organization that doesn't just throw money. I think that's excellent advice, especially for the average human being that may think sending a portion of their paycheck to any organization will help. It's a start. And they don't just give one organization, they give many as well as personal narratives about each of them. Sure, some are a lot more practical than others. But that's why we have brains--so we can do our own research and decide for ourselves.
