It's sad that such a stigma is attached to bladder leakage. All of us most likely know people, even young, with the problem. Must be awful. There was a televison program about how young women get it after giving birth and it was so sad to hear what they had to say. Depend sounds like a good idea.

Yes, Cheryl, Rome wasn't made in a day. We progressed slower but still point out what's lacking in developing countries instead of recognizing that their accomplishments are faster than what we managed.

Glad you agree with me, Pamela. Who own's the media?:-)

Yes, Jeri, it's lamentable that Western media puts a negative spin on Muslim women, isn't it.

It is isn't it, Ken. One female Saudi friend of mine has her own tallk show on Saudi television since 2006. Keep in mind that Barbara Walters wasn't allowed to have her own television in the US until in the 90s. Then years later a woman had her own show in the US:-)

Agree with you about the importance of education, Meredith. Did you know that more women than men study at university in Saudi Arabia?

AK, because of ISIS the royal family of Saudi Arabia need the cooperation of the religious establishment to make sure no iman is preaching fundamentalism in a mosque. And the religious people are against women driving. So that's the price for stopping Saudis joining ISIS. Why is it considered so important to be able to drive? Isn't voting in elections and having a career more important? Besides a lot of Western women would love to have drivers:-)

It sure is, Jacqueline,isn't it. That book is about 10-20 years old. Have it in London. Wouldn't it be a good idea if media stopped focusing on negative news only? In the case of Muslim women it's mainly horrendous news, actually.

It's great that they are making progress isn't it, Susan. Sad that media in the West just write horrendous, or at best, just negative stories.

My pleasure, Andleeb. Many of my female Saudi friends have studied at top universities abroad and hold senior positions in leading Saudi companies. Daesh's vision is an apocalyptic interpretation of Islam that boils down to the fact that people joining Daesh will go to heaven and the ones that don't will go to hell. Apparently there is some text somewhere that they base this on. And Syria is the place where that text predicts that the end of the world will happen.
