Omar brought my attention to something pretty unique. A few months ago I pondered whether HM Queen Rania was becoming a blogger herself, based on the style of a few posts on her personal website. Lately Queen Rania has joined Yahoo! Answers to ask a single yet important question: “What are you doing to empower women in your community?”
Skimming through the some 3,000 comments left in response to her question I can say that some were articulate, some were honest, some were absurd, some were weird, some were disturbing, some were rude, some were offensive and some were enlightening while some came with a glimmer of hope. But that’s the wacky world of the Internet, much like real life. I just hope it won’t discourage her the same way it sometimes discourages me.
