Yes, and western governments like it that way. Cos they do too. An international, institutional indifference borne of the same feeling. Western politics needs Arab women to be nothing more than headscarfs and hymen in discussions which avoids examination of the inequality the economic system we impose, exploits. We exploit the same inequality domestically for the same reason, using much the same techniques on a less brutal scale. For some.

Added later- this post was written rashly. I have never been to a country in the world where men hate women. Shame I have seen few political systems that didn’t. Rest of post stands.
