OBSERVATION: While I've attempted to remain politically neutral throughout this BLOG, I believe Globalization has partially contributed to the rise of Islamic Fundamentalism.
The dramatic changes for the status of women in Asia mirror the modern pressures currently underway in Islamic countries.

The verdict is still out whether our world can withstand this latest storm of hate & violence. Unlike facism or communism, the roots of this cultural struggle are based on corrupt religious ideals. While I don't claim to have all the answers, I believe world peace may rest in the further social & political empowerment of women in all societies. Somehow, instead of focusing on those issues which divide our world, it's time to build a permanent bridge of peaceful tolerance.

Perhaps only the mothers, daughters, & sisters of the world understand the love it takes to stop the ongoing madness.
