If a country really has Rule of Law, then their women don't need to be guarded/"accompanied".

They just need a male guardian to drive them to court still

It's a big step in the right direction. They still have a long way to go.

Unfortunately, HRH King Abdullah is 90-ish and the crown prince is less progressive.

Better late than never, that's what I always say.

Wait. Can I ever say that about adult women? In any context? I must meditate on this.

(Notably, in the Hebrew Scripture, "meditation" is more like "rumination," something a cow does with its food, akin to rechewing the same idea over and over and over again. Really Old Testament meditation has nothing to do with Buddhist meditation, except that occasionally a fresh insight may be tasted.)

I really should stop commenting before I read these articles. I'm so bad!
