Do you think that women will ever truly have equal rights in the Middle East?
Ben Buckmaster WABASHA, MINN.
Absolutely, I believe they will. I think that mind-sets are changing in the Middle East. Poll after poll is showing that men see the value of greater female participation and empowerment. We still have a long way to go, but Islam should not be used as a scapegoat. The obstacles that face women today are more cultural. It's not about the religion.
My daughters are being abused by other Muslim students at school for not wearing a veil. Your advice?
