A naked ignorant or an educated covered?

What does women liberation mean? The concept of the liberation of women has been misinterpreted for decades. What kind of freedom does a woman want? And when can we call a woman free?

Women have started their revolution asking for simple and basic life rights for over a hundred years for now. And their revolution has never finished, and will never finish until each and every woman is educated.

Many women and men in different communities believe that women should take off their clothes and walk naked to be called open minded and liberated. Others think that not getting married is liberation by itself! Amputating needs, desires, and naturalism from their lives is another reason for women to think that they feel liberated. Powerful political positions are sometimes a goal for “liberated” women.

But what if that female president, or that famous businesswoman, was not doing what she really wants? Only forced by her “liberated thoughts” and the “liberated society” to be whatever she is?

This kind of problem is facing not only women but human beings in general. Everyone seems to be looking for what is hard to get, and what they don’t have, and start drawing their life lines trying to reach it. Everybody wants what they don’t have and should have instead of looking at what they have and should use. I believe that God provide tools for each and every human on this earth, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, beliefs, and status in the society. Those tools are for them to use wisely to benefit themselves and the humanity. If one keeps looking for what they don’t have, he/she will always be disappointed, angry, and frustrated. One should use what he/she has and be creative.

So again, a woman doesn’t need to take of her clothes to be free. Nor she has to let go neither her values nor her beliefs to be free and liberated. Liberation is a matter of choice. If you choose to get naked then you are free, and if you choose to be covered then you are free as well.

However, freedom and liberation need education as education provides the human with the ability to know how to choose, what to choose, and let people choose! Education is at the end the only way to any possible freedom and liberation. A liberated person must be educated, and an educated human deserves liberation. As the German philosopher and writer J.W. von Goethe once said “There is nothing worse than ignorance in action.”

Everyone should get over their genders and start working for themselves, their society, and the rest of the world. And remember that “It is fatal to be a man or woman pure and simple: one must be a woman manly, or a man womanly.”

Are you up to this? هل أنت جاهز؟

I`m definitely going to be involved in this, I always thought about this idea, but then ignored it. A national campaign to improve the content. What do you think?

Please share this with everyone you know, I know many people will be interested, even if some, it will still be considered an improvement.

Here is another video that teaches you how to make an article.

Islamic art as cultural diplomacy

“One of the finest collections of Islamic art in the world has been given a new home at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Drawn from the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and Asia the artefacts on display evoke the rich diversity of Islam.

As well as captivating the public, the Metropolitan Museum is hoping its new galleries will also help dispel stereotypes about Muslim culture in the United States.

Michael Maher reports on the exhibition, which opens on 1 November.”

Picaso’s Tete De Femme pencil sketch retrieved

I just read an article on BBC talking about Picaso’s  Tete De Femme stolen pencil sketch. I didn’t know that it was actually stolen and I can’t even think of how a man can simply hold such a valuable sketch under his arm without being noticed by the security in San Francisco art gallery. The sketch is now recovered without its frame. Art Gallary guards would better watch out! Not all the people with high taste can afford buying such pieces.

Van Gogh did not kill himself

So Mr. Vincent van Gough did not kill himself after all! So the story of Gough’s shooting himself in the chest in 1890 was not true after all!

“Vincent Van Gogh did not kill himself, the authors of new biography Van Gogh: The Life have claimed.he was shot accidentally by two boys he knew who had “a malfunctioning gun”.The authors came to their conclusion after 10 years of study with more than 20 translators and researchers.”

Well 10 years of study cannot produce a lie after all, what do you think?

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!

 

 

A new Da Vinci painting?

An Oxford University professor says he has found that the painting above has a large degree of possibility to be one of Leonardo Da Vinci’s paintings, and could worth millions after it was sold for only $21,850. However, the National Gallary which is having a Da  Vinci’s exhibition in November says that there is no general agreement that the painting is Da Vinci’s.

I wonder who has the painting now, and I hope it is Da Vinci’s. Not that I am an art history professor, but it is his brush style right?
