You really must go read "In Saudi Arabia, a view from behind the veil," an article about the horrific gender segregation. It's absolutely vile. Go here and click on the top link to read.

And the feminists remain silent.

Yeah, that was on Page 1 of the LA Times yesterday. I have to give them props for having a lot of good human interest stories on their front page...quite regularly about American soldiers too.

Sarah - I read that article too. I must say that I am guilty of being an American woman, who thought FOR SURE (before 9/11) that all the world's women were afforded the same rights as women here. When I first heard of the taliban and saw the women fully covered except for their eyes, I was shocked and thought "hell no". That article was eye-opening for many reasons, but mainly because to me, if ANYONE wants to import that lifestyle here and wants to make ME conform to it, I'll take my second amendment rights for the first time and tell them to take a hike.
