Making it one of the first Arab countries to grant this blessing
|Quoting QR332 (Reply 3):|
Women in Jordan can vote & can be MPs, same with Egypt & Lebanon. Qatar has several women in high positions in government, although I am not sure about the voting issue, and finally, I think the Emirates has also put several laws in place for equality of men and women. Lets just hope all Arab countries follow down this path.

"Kuwait is one of only two countries in the Middle East and North Africa that do not permit universal suffrage, even though its constitution grants equal rights to men and women. The country's parliament is elected by popular vote, but only about 15 percent of the country's 950,000 citizens are eligible to cast ballots."

Sorry, forgot to put it in. I don't believe this has been updated since this decision.
|Quoting Iakobos (Reply 8):|
Equality in the Middle East is subjective...sorry QR, at this stage women in Kuwait will be equal to a certain category of men...and you know that the parliament has no power, it is a thin layer of democratic paint on a family run business.

Congrats not only to Kuwait's women, but to Kuwait itself, for taking a great step forward for not only them, but the entire Arab world.
