Some of us (non-Arabs) implies that the Arab world has a "notorious" culture that is so dismissive of women.
Truth is, Arab women (you read it right, WOMEN) are involved and they are hardly the unfortunate and/or most oppressed women in the world. In fact, in Yemen, women play a major part in the military scene as they allow women to enter the ranks of the country's counter-terrorism units. Watch the clip and find out why Yemeni women trade their abayas for AK47s.
And that is just how they do things in the Arab world... ✿
