- Nepal is trying to become a secular state. That could be important, especially given its recent history.
- Kuwaiti women not only have the vote (as of last year) but now actually may get to exercise it, and may have the choice of a few female candidates as well. go first wave feminism!
- women in the UK who have given up careers to raise children can now claim compensation for lost earnings/potential earnings when they divorce their husbands. whether a househusband can do the same is unclear from the coverage.
meanwhile, I've been sucked in to the UK's new series of Big Brother. more soon.
