 We read little in the mainstream press about secular movements for  democracy in places like Iraq, Pakistan, and Egypt, but they are there--led by workers, women, and others.  Bill Resnick talks with anthropologist Kamran Ali who identifies some of these democratic forces and how they have been stymied by US-supported dictators.

Do Muslim Women Need Saving?

When the United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan, one of the prominent justifications was liberating the people George W Bush called “women of cover” from the Taliban.  Laura Bush told us in 2002  that “the fight against terrorism is also a fight for the rights and dignity of women."  Similarly, in March 2003, shortly after the United States and its allies invaded Iraq, women's rights and gender equity  were mentioned as symbolic issues for Iraq's new national agenda.
