This reminds me of an article I read about Saudi journalist Wajiha al Huwayder. She wrote a scathing article (http://littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/?entry=10327 on Arab men. I'm sure we're getting into stereotypes here, but while stereotypes aren't absolutes, they don't exist in a vacuum either. From the few Arab men I've been in contact with, I can say without a doubt if I lived in that part of the world I would be covered from head to toe to avoid being seen.

Hey, Willow --

I blogged about Wajiha al Huwayder the other day (had seen it, as you did, at LGF) . . . Interesting how the internet is becoming a virtual meeting place for women who aren't allowed to go out without supervision.

She also critized not just the men for being ineffectual boors but also the women for being lazy and greedy. Equal opportunity scathing.

Do you suppose blogging will make a difference?

Funny how I didn't really hone in on her critique of the women. Selective reading on my part? I hate when I do that.

I hope it will make a difference. When in history has communication between so many people from so many places been so easy and accessible? It's bound to have some effect, both good and bad.

Here's to the good...
