What a difference a president can make! During the era of George Walker Bush the United States were in bed with the Saudis, the Iranians, the Pakistanis and the Vatican in all conferences having to do with women's rights. This may surprise those of you who have read about the Iranians, say, as a possible U.S. enemy. But when it comes to the proper roles of women the fundies of all religions agree!
Which is scary. But at least that odd symbiotic arrangement doesn't function under the Obama administration. The U.S. fundies don't have the weight of the U.S. government behind their views. I'm grateful for that.
