Default Re: The Struggle For Reform In Saudi Arabia (Robert Wright & Hala Al-Dosari)

That's a good point, Ocean. I very much admire people like Hala. But, I do wonder if they might not have to get a little more agressive about pushing reforms.

I wondered also, when she mentioned relying on support from the outside, and she referred human rights groups, I think. I couldn't hear her all that well. I wondered what she thinks of statements and actions of the leaders of western countries, what they can do, or not do, to help, and whether the UN or any of its agencies seem helpful. And I thought about western feminist groups. They sometimes seem sort of oblivious to the issues facing women in other countries, but maybe they try to help in ways of which I'm not aware.

Thanks again to Bob for bringing us these diavlogs with interesting people. Appreciate his interview style very much.

I do admire what Hala is doing, and none of the above is intended as any criticism. I am just wondering what might help her and her people. I don't have a negative feeling towards countries like Saudi Arabia. They seem sort of like ancient treasures, rich in history, but they need to advance to make the lives of their people today better.
