What’s next???

Its 2007, women in kuwait can vote, run for parliament, are reaching high positions and they have become ministers, but for some crazy reason the parliament thinks its necessary to set up the working hours rule.
What is really stupid about that rule is it excludes a lot of jobs from that law (such as doctors, nurses, etc.)
Ya3ni sij I don’t understand where they are trying to go with this rule?! If anyone has any idea plz let me know, because everything they are saying is not making sense in my head!
My mother and I went to the “e3te9am” yesterday in the Womens Society in khaldiya, and the amount of people that came was great, and it wasn’t only women, there were a lot of men there.
I just hope that they revoke this stupid rule, along with the segregation rule in universities.

    Anonymous Coward – People like me know why this is happening, and religion is not exactly it. They might use religion as a scape goat, but there has to be underlying causes that got them to do this and not only because “in islam this is 7aram or this is wrong”.

    You are mistaken boredq8. Wherever there is a religious body of influence on a country’s affairs, there are oppressive rules against women.

    Iran, Iraq, Gaza, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Malaysia. I would like to stress that this is not unique to Islam, but is the state of affairs in all societies where religion plays a major role in a country’s decision making. This includes Europe in the middle ages.

    So yes, whether you like it or not, it IS religion!
