Summary Program #783: "Title: Beyond the Veil - Women and Changes in the Middle East. When Egyptian women gained the right to no-fault divorce in 2001, they achieved a remarkable victory. In building the parliamentary coalition they needed, their first recourse was to respected Muslim clerics who agreed with their interpretation of traditional Islamic Law. The result of the effort was typical of the ways in which women are bringing about change throughout the middle-east. Mahnaz Afkhamie and Diane Singerman analyze methods employed and challenges faced by women in a variety of middle-eastern countries."--Track sheet.
Program #800: Title: When East meets West: "A Conversation with Khaled Ahmed. The prediction of major cultural clash between the West and Islamic world is often predicted as the world's immediate and given future. This assumes that there is a unified Muslim grievance against the West and one which results in an Islamic foreign policy shared by Muslims everywhere. Journalist Khaled Ahmed takes strong exception to this view and further exlains the complexities of society and government in his native Pakistan."--Track sheet.
Commentary #249: Title: "Members of Congress should Vote their Consciences more often. Members of the new Republican minority in Congress have found a sudden sense of freedom in their ability to vote as they want to, rather than as the leadership tells them to. Former Congressman Lee Hamilton says there's a lesson in this."--Track sheet.
