Saudi Woman Kicks Butt In Debate Over Women's Rights

Saudi newscaster Buthayna Nasser engages in a debate with a cleric named Nasser Al-Huneini about whether women should be allowed to be seen on television. She is a sight to behold. Her arguments were rational and well articulated and, above all else, gutsy. You should definitely see this. It will make you proud to be a woman and it challenges the notion that all Muslim women are too afraid to express their feelings about issues or too cowardly to stand up to those who would try to use religion to oppress them.
