    You know... I think we should aspire to be these female role models we seem to be lacking out there currently  piggy

    Also, I would like to say Sundas and Maryam are also good female role models. Sundas, who I've met a few times now, is a confident and head strong woman, and that's exactly the sort of people you need to see changes in the world.

    It's funny how going through school the only female 'role model' of a sort I heard of was Marie Curie (the physicist) and Florence Nightingale. -Although I didn't take them as my personal role models (I was looking to Einstein, Indiana Jones and the like Tongue )

    I think it's good to have women recognised in their fields, but I still think it's also important to try and raise both girls and boys to be able to look to either women or men as a role model - why should we be limited to one or the other.

    Aung San Suu Kyi

    Quote
    Aung San Suu Kyi was born on 19 June 1945 in Rangoon (now named Yangon).[ ] Her father, Aung San, founded the modern Burmese army and negotiated Burma's independence from the British Empire in 1947; he was assassinated by his rivals in the same year. She grew up with her mother, Khin Kyi, and two brothers, Aung San Lin and Aung San Oo, in Rangoon. Aung San Lin died at the age of eight, when he drowned in an ornamental lake on the grounds of the house.[19] Her elder brother immigrated to San Diego, California, becoming a United States citizen

    Suu Kyi's mother, Khin Kyi, gained prominence as a political figure in the newly formed Burmese government. She was appointed Burmese ambassador to India and Nepal in 1960, and Aung San Suu Kyi followed her there, she studied in the Convent of Jesus and Mary School, New Delhi and graduated from Lady Shri Ram College in New Delhi with a degree in politics in 1964.   Suu Kyi continued her education at St Hugh's College, Oxford, obtaining a B.A. degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics in 1969.  According to a classmate, Suu Kyi fell in love with Tariq Hyder, a Pakistani student, during her second year in Oxford.  Their relationship was not well received by her circle of friends and it soon ended.  After graduating, she lived in New York City with a family friend Ma Than E, who was once a popular Burmese pop singer. She worked at the United Nations for three years, primarily on budget matters, writing daily to her future husband, Dr. Michael Aris. In late 1971, Aung San Suu Kyi married Aris, a scholar of Tibetan culture, living abroad in Bhutan.  The following year she gave birth to their first son, Alexander Aris, in London; their second son, Kim, was born in 1977. Between 1985 and 1987, Suu Kyi was working toward an M.Phil in Burmese literature as a research student at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. She was elected as an Honorary Fellow in 1990.  For two years she was a Fellow at the Indian Institute of Advanced Studies (IIAS) in Shimla, India. She also worked for the government of the Union of Burma.

    Aris was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1997 which was later found to be terminal. Despite appeals from prominent figures and organisations, including the United States, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and Pope John Paul II, the Burmese government would not grant Aris a visa, saying that they did not have the facilities to care for him, and instead urged Aung San Suu Kyi to leave the country to visit him. She was at that time temporarily free from house arrest but was unwilling to depart, fearing that she would be refused re-entry if she left, as she did not trust the military junta's assurance that she could return

    Yes but with all the support and priviledge she had plenty of support and the foundation of thinking was built and insisted upon by her mother. Her position and status being a huge influence on her ability to access opportunities.  I hope I too can extend such priviledges to my own children despite the obstacles in their way.

    And it just proves how far women have come and how far they still need to go!

    Those of you who watched the movie. "A Stranger in Her Own City"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAkPFZQA6EM

    was directed by her..

    Quote
    Khadija al-Salami (born 1966, in Sana'a, Yemen), is the first Yemeni female film producer. Al-Salami resides in Paris, France.

    At an early age, al-Salami was sent to live with relatives after her mother divorced her father over severe domestic abuse. At age 11, she was forced by her uncle into an early marriage and was raped by her husband. Some weeks later, after much protest and disobedience, her husband returned her to her uncle, who immediately disowned her and returned her to her single mother. She escaped the immense family and society pressure by finding employment with the local television station and simultaneously attending school in the mornings.

    At the age of 16, she received a scholarship to finish secondary school in the United States. Subsequently, she enrolled at the Mount Vernon College for Women, in Washington, D.C.. After a period in Yemen and Paris, she returned to Washington to earn her Master's degree in communications at the American university. For her thesis, she produced her first film.

    Since then, al-Salami has produced several documentaties for various television networks in France and Yemen. The primary focus of her documentaries focus on women, possibly as a reflection of her life experience. She has also co-authored with her current husband, the American Charles Hoots, an autobiography, The Tears of Sheba.

    al-Salami currently serves as Press and Cultural attaché and Director of the Yemeni Information Centre at the Embassy of Yemen in Paris

    For you billy :

    Fumando espero (al hombre quien yo quero) Smoking I wait (for the man I love) The song was forbidden in Spain for a number of years.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wU5wqPlSyXQ

    For some reason it is only part of the song - full version here :

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mA9t6TC9jo4


     
    Fumar es un placer, genial, sensual...
    Fumando espero al hombre que yo quiero,
    tras los cristales de alegres ventanales
    Y mientras fumo mi vida no consumo
    porque flotando el humo me suelo adormecer.

    Tendida en mi sofá, fumar y amar,
    ver a mi amado feliz y enamorado,
    sentir sus labios besar con besos sabios.
    Y el devaneo sentir con más deseo,
    cuando sus ojos siento sedientos de pasión.

    Por eso estando mi bien
    es mi fumar un eden.
    Dame el humo de tu boca
    Dame que en mi,
    pasión provoca.
    Corre que quiero
    enloquecer de placer,
    sintiendo ese calor
    del humo embriagador
    que acaba por prender
    la llama ardiente del amor.

    La hora de inquietud con él no es cruel
    sus espirales son sueños celestiales,
    y forman nubes que hacia la gloria suben
    y envuelta en ella, su chispa es una estrella,
    que luce clara y bella con límpido fulgor.

    Smoking I wait for the man I love
    behind the wide panes of pleasant windows
    and as I smoke I consume not life,
    tending to sleep in the drifting smoke.

    To lie on my sofa, smoke and love
    to see my lover happy loving me
    to feel his lips kiss with wise kisses
    and more keenly desire the affair,
    feeling the thirst for passion in his eyes.

    When my love is near
    smoking is an Eden.
    Give me the smoke from your mouth,
    give, for it sparks
    passion within.
    Run to me; I want
    to go crazy with pleasure
    feeling the heat of
    intoxicating smoke
    that has just ignited
    love's burning flame.

    The restless hour is not cruel, with him
    his spirals are celestial dreams
    forming clouds that ascend into glory
    and wrapped in the mist, his spark is a star
    shining with beauty clear and bright.

    Like a compass needle that points north, a man?s accusing finger always finds a woman. Always.
