WOMEN GET THE VOTE IN KUWAIT….Via Praktike, a firsthand blog account of Kuwait’s decision to allow women to vote:

It’s now a little after 730pm, and I’ve just gotten into the office after a full day at Parliament. We arrived at the National Assembly around 830am, and 11 hours later, we walked out of their with our rights.

It was absolutely amazing to behold. A madhouse, a circus, a zoo.. but absolutely amazing.

….A million congratulations once again. Congrtulations to women, congratulations to women of Kuwait especially, and congratulations to Kuwait. If you were there, we were the lucky few to have been able to witness a turning point in Kuwait’s history.

There are some restrictions, and women are allowed to vote only in parliamentary elections, not municipal elections, but still. We could all use some good news, right?
