A Step In the Right Direction for Kuwait

First off, apologies for the lack of posting here the past three weeks. I just couldn't seem to find the time to plant my ass in front of my computer and crank out some posts. I hope to get back in the saddle again soon.

Anyway, I meant to do a post about this several days ago when I first read about it, but thought I would give it a belated mention. In a positive turn in Kuwait, women (four of them, in fact) were elected to this Arab Gulf state's parliament for the first time in its history. Since I devote not a few posts on this blog decrying the unequal status of women in many Muslim states, including this post last year when I decried that not a single woman candidate for parliament in Kuwait was elected last year, it is only right that I highlight the good news as well.

Thanks, Tina. Unfortunately, I just haven't been able to devote time to the blog lately and do regular posts. I will try to finish one I started tonight. Hope all is okay at your end.

Cool story as for me. It would be great to read more about that matter. Thanks for giving this data.
