  1. Hi Christy,

    Thank you for reblogging this post. I am always inspired by young women like Farah who has the courage to speak up about women’s issues in their countries. Too often, we do not know about these women but only know about the inequitable treatment that females must endure. One of the most encouraging aspects of social media is that everyone can be educated about these social issues and can find support for their beliefs. Ultimately, our world would be much richer if we could celebrate each other’s differences and respect each other as equals.

    Hope your weekend is full of smiles and hugs.

    Best wishes,
    Linnea

    • Yes, Linnea, I was reading a post recently about the hopefulness that the Internet can provide us in terms of education… I suppose the main thing here is to distinguish which posts are the quality ones… Thank you for your introspective comment here, dear friend.

  2. This is an eye opening article. I always thought that Egypt was the most progressive (as far as women’s rights goes) of Middle Eastern Countries.
    I applaud your courage, Farah, and wish you all the best in your fight for women’s rights.
    Thanks, Christy, for this important post.

  3. Fascinating, and so courageous of Farah to take her liberties and stand up for women. Another brave girl comes to mind when reading this, Malala! I love this! ❤
