Oooh, great insights about England and recent "western" ideals. Appreciate the sharing.


Julian commented on Every woman is someone's sister, mother or daughter

Azita, Im not sure of the cultural implications of this questions (and I hope you can provide me worth some insights), but It my feeling that the woman in the image you selected (if characteristic or representative of your user or community) does not display any level of confidence or empowerment. She is sunken back, almost hiding in her head covering. This also relates to your idea in that you are suggesting that women need help. Im wondering if there are deeper cultural (or religious) norms that prevent women from being viewed as confident or empowered that need to be addressed before any paradigms can change in favor of the empowered woman. In this context, how would a woman display her empowerment?

Thanks for all the positive feedback!
