but the girls in Saudi are happy

September 30, 2011

Women in Saudi will have the right to vote and to run as candidates in future local elections. Good news? I couldn’t argue that this is the beginning of the ‘Saudi Spring’, as it seems that the winter there is still too long….

In China….the girls are not happy…

In China  a TV talent show,  ‘Happy Girl’,  was just recently shut down by the government as it allowed viewers to vote for the winner and therefore it promoted democratic values. So interesting!

Being exposed to decision-making procedures, exercising the right to vote and participatory behaviours are likely to make the Chinese people demanding more and more….happiness. So sad -for the government- to be happy in China!
