Hello Jade,Thank you for

Hello Jade,

Thank you for your welcome and concern about Saudi Arabia and Saudi women. Actually I am not Saudi. I am Sudanese living in Saudi Arabia for more than ten year. I witness women movement in its ups and downs. Nowadays, women empowerment is crowned by the nomination of Noora alfayez, as the first Saudi lady promoted and admitted to the Saudi Council of Ministers. She will serve in a new position as deputy minister for women's education. Having taken the decision to improve the situation of women here, King Abdullah made a big leap in the history of the king.

Concerning the situation of women in my homeland, we are undergoing the worst moments in history, the government currently, is on the way to legalize female genital mutilation (FGM), the worst type of domestic violence practiced against woman at a very tiny age.

I will be back to this issue.

Regards,
Halima
