    OMG, you are the best Stacy- I wouldn’t have know this had you not posted it! Thanks so much!

    What would we do without you keeping on top of everything Hillary is doing and foreign policy in general?

    As I looked back over the stills and videos of mostly young protestors from Egypt, and now Yemen, I was struck by one thing — the absence of women in the crowds. This was a sobering reminder of the fact that regime change will not include reform in the area women’s rights. It has always been amazing to me that activists here and in Arab and Muslim nations decry other abuses of human rights, but circumcision of young girls — to choose just one example — continues in Egypt to this day with little publicity and no general uproar. Tunisia used to be an exception to the general rule in Arab countries
    as far as women’s rights were concerned (although some thought Ben Ali’s championing
    women’s rights was his way of masking his
    otherwise deplorable record on human rights).

      Yeah, it’s pretty sobering to see all those male faces. There is no doubt that entrenched sexism is still very, very prevalent in the Muslim world and it remains to be seen if a more democratic system would change some of that. I am surprised there aren’t more women protesting. Richard Engel on MSNBC made a comment that in the beginning of the protests the other day there were more women but it’s no longer a family affair due to the increasing violence. While that may be true to some extent, I think there’s more to it than that.

      Egypt is a tough nut to crack with respect to sexism because it’s incredibly patriarchal but not as overtly Islamist as some other Arab countries. I have friends over there and went to visit them two years ago and they (the women) happen to be part of the upper class, are more secular Muslims and all are incredibly well educated- all of them are doctors, etc. and yet it’s still a very conservative society. The women that really have a very, very hard time are the poorest women of course and the class system is so entrenched it’s very difficult for poor women to ever break out of their poverty. The dowry system is still the rule, not the exception.

    Stacy thanks so much for the heads up. I would have had no idea she was on all the Sunday talk shows.
