Saudi Women Will Be Driving In June 2018 As Kingdom Harnesses Their Economic Power

women-drive-929170.jpg

There are few greater symbols of women's oppression worldwide than the prohibition against women driving in Saudi Arabia. AOC has lobbied against this absurd law for nearly a decade.  The New York Times reminds us:

Some said that it was inappropriate in Saudi culture for women to drive, or that male drivers would not know how to handle women in cars next to them. Others argued that allowing women to drive would lead to promiscuity and the collapse of the Saudi family. One cleric claimed — with no evidence — that driving harmed women’s ovaries.

Pure economics is part of the change promoted by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the king's young son charged with overhauling the kingdom's economy and society. Low oil prices have limited the government's ability to fund unneeded jobs. Women's incomes are critical in expanding economic demand in the kingdom. 

Saudi women are expected to legally hit the road in June 2018, after a period of training male police officers how to interact with women and teaching women how to drive. 

Earlier in 2017 King Salman bin Abdulaziz Saud issued an order allowing women to benefit from government services including education and healthcare without getting the permission of a male guardian. The decision came after spring 2017 outrage over the the election of Saudi Arabia to the UN's women's commission, whose role is to shape "global standards on gender equality and the empowerment of women".

The Cut Announces '5 Under 35' All Women National Book Foundation Honorees

New York Magazine's newly revamped 'The Cut' shares the names of the National Book Foundation's '5 under 35', an annual prize recognizing five young debut fiction writers whose work "promises to leave an indelible mark on the literary landscape".  For the second time in the award's 12-year history, the five nominees are women, with three being women of color. 

“At a moment in which we are having the necessary conversations surrounding the underrepresentation of female voices, it’s a thrill to see this list of tremendous women chosen organically by our selectors,” said Lisa Lucas, executive director of the National Book Foundation. “These writers and their work represent an incredibly bright future for the world of literary fiction.” Here are the honorees, each selected by a former honoree:

Kardashian is a bit late for her simply-brilliant Allure interview with GQ writer Devin Friedman. When I say 'brilliant', the word applies to both humans. In fact, Friedman's writing sparkles -- not with the common broad-stroke, high-and-mighty intellectual condemnation of Kardashian's character on behalf of millions of Twitter minions -- but with verve and personal insights.

I can't remember when I last read such an insightful, entertaining and clever interview -- one definitely dependent on the creative and psychoanalytical talents of the writer.

Angela Merkel's CDU Party Wins German Election But Must Form Govt With Greens & Free Liberals

Politico Europe shares news of Angela Merkel's victory as the Germany chancellor's Conservative party posts its worst score in national elections since 1949.  Likewise, the second-place Social Democrats (SPD) lost votes to the third-place, far-right finishers. 

“We don’t need to beat about the bush, we had hoped for a better result. But we should not forget that we had a very challenging parliamentary term behind us,” Merkel told supporters at the headquarters of her CDU party.

“We have the task of forming a government.”

With the Social Democrats saying they will now become an opposition party, Merkel will be trying to form a governing coalition with the liberal Free Democrats (estimated 10.5 percent) and the Greens (9.1 percent). Such a coalition has never been attempted in Germany -- although if anyone can thread that needle, it's Angela Merkel. 

Alexander Gauland, one of the leaders of the anti-immigrant AfD, vowed to “hunt” Merkel’s government from its new base in parliament.
