Cultural Differences

There was an article on Yahoo yesterday about Saudi women bloggers. It gave some of their websites, and I decided to do a little browsing.

I came across the blog of a woman who calls herself "Jo" - She's 23 yrs. old and lives in Saudi. A very outspoken young lady, one I can identify with for her independent thinking and non-acceptance of the misogynist attitudes of the religious "Sharia" law makers.

In many ways, her liveliness, her attitude, her determination - remind me of Amanda. I'm so glad that I was born here, and that Amanda was as well - where, at least for the time being we enjoy freedom and independence, and do not HAVE to have a man in our lives unless we WANT said man in our lives.
