Women in Nepal

Women in Pakistan

and we complain about the lack of rights we have in this country - but what about them? We complain that a facelift isn't covered by our insurance, they can't even have a baby safely! I don't understand how we can be so simple minded, and think that we have a world view when the only thing we know is what is told to us on the very biased, very US based "world news" who believe the world consists of Iraq and our "failings" there...

I'm not a martyr or really on a soap box (though I am) I just think we need to concentrate more on what is actually going on in the world, instead of focusing on the same small strip of existence for 20+ days and calling that news.
