that makes me mad that some cultures still treat women like stupid little girls! Asking the closest male relative for PERMISSION to travel alone?!?!?! that's an outrage! I understand some parts of their culture is based on religion and that parts okay. I'm just saying, religion aside, women should be treated as equals to men!

It is highly unlikely things will change much in that area, and if they do, it will be for the worse or not much better at all. The Middle East still very much lives in the dark ages when it comes to many things, especially women... I sincerely hope things will change, but the sad reality is that the bad ideas and rules for women have been deeply brainwashed into the people, and they are unlikely to go away. :[

I come from this country and I'm hoping it's gonna change soon. I'm not living there at thee moment and from my experiences I think we do deserve more freedom. XD

While this is definitely good, if it actually happens sometime soon, there is still a lot of progress to be made in that area of the world. Women have virtually no rights there, and while this will certainly help improve things, there is still a lot to be done.

That part about how victims of rapists are at fault is completely ridiculous! I mean, you get violated and assaulted cruelly and you're to blame? I think that, just to prove this prejudiced world wrong, women should take action. It all starts with every single girl out there. Believe in yourself and dominate your own world

We talked about this in history class. An all of us agreed that it was actually a SMALL STEP.
a) Women may not be able to vote in that country until 2015
b) Women must still cover their faces when out in public
c) If they want to go anywhere in or out of the country, they must ask the closest male relative

It just makes me sick seeing how men treat women! Even in the U.S. most men consider women inferior. But where would they be without women? Uh, they wouldn't exist! Come on, learn a little RESPECT!!!
