It’s kind ridiculous for people to think that a country like Tunisia can change overnight. It’s not about a religion and it’s more about culture. If we are talking about women’s rights here I think it’s important to remind people that the great advanced America didn’t pass the 19th Amendment granting a woman’s right to vote until 1920. We have people who are still alive that were born before 1920. It’s taken us, the USA, the great shining beacon of freedom, a very long time to “modernize.”

It is also arrogant for clueless outsiders to opine about what forms of political action/protest will work in a particular setting. I have no idea how to agitate for better rights in Tunisia, but I’m reasonably certain that US/European models will be completely inapplicable, or will at least need extremely heavy modification to have a hope of working.

It reminds me of a chilling alternate history short story I read many years ago. The Nazis had won WWII, and there was a trouble maker by the name of Ghandi in the German Raj…
