Womans Rights in Sudan...

I applaud this woman this is a TRUE role model!

"The Sudanese journalist who was convicted of violating her country’s decency laws for wearing a pair of green slacks in public was released from jail on Tuesday, though she is not exactly sure why."

"Lubna Hussein, the journalist, was jailed on Monday after refusing to pay a fine. Under Islamic law, she had faced up to 40 lashings, which instantly turned her case into something of an international sensation. Mrs. Hussein said that she did not pay the fine — approximately $200 — though a Sudanese journalist organization may have."

  • Heard this on NPR this morning...the one thing she is upset about is that there are still many other women in prison.

  • How come the feminist organizations are not vocal about this worldwide problem? Muslim women overseas AND in the US suffer far worse oppression than the male chauvinism which was/is so decried in Women's studies classes, yet Islam seems to get a pass on its' view that women are property, without human rights.
