An Arab woman awarded the Nobel Peace Prize

Tawakul Karman , a journalist from Yemen has won the Nobel Peace Prize

“for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work”

Karman has created the human rights group Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC) in 2005 for promoting human rights.Ms. Karman, who belongs to the main opposition party,  Al-Islah, has also spoken out against the rise of religious fundamentalism and violence in her country.

Regardless of the controversy of her act of taking of her “Niqab” and asking women in her country to do so, I`m so proud of her and I ask all the suppressed women in our society to follow her steps to prove themselves and speak out for their rights!

  1. IF THIS LADY CAN BE OUR PRESIDENT THINGS WILL BE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AND MUCH BETTER FOR EVERYONE IN YEMEN.
    I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT WHEN THE ELECTION DAY COMES MY PEOPLE IN YEMEN WILL REVEAL THEIR TRUE UNDERSTANDING AND VOTE FOR HER.
    GOD KNOWS HOW BAD WE NEED HER OR SOMEONE LIKE HER TO GUIDE AND LEAD THE COUNTRY OUT OF THE DARKNESS TO A BETTER AND BRIGHTER TODAYS.
    God plus Tawakul Karman.
