i just checked the lates video. i think it's so much better than the last one, although perhaps the topic allows (and demands) a bit more time to discuss it in more depth. all she said was extremely interesting, but would mean so much more if they extended on it a bit more.

at least she is trying to do something. I never was a big fan of Queen Rania to be honest, but now I admire her SO much and I respect everything she's doing, She is a VERY smart women, the effort she's doing is fruitful, we will be noticing that in the near future,IF she remains the same, I honestly appreciate the stuff she does more than what King Abdullah does. I have met a lot of "Anti Rania" in Jordan but now they ALL appreciate her more and respect her more and more!

Keep up the good work Rania :)

I'd like to point out that this thread is not the place to discuss the socio-political problems in Jordan and the Arab world at large.

This discussion can easily be carried out on Queen Rania's YouTube channel, it is certainly the proper place for it, not to mention the fact that Rania is more likely to notice is over there.

Any further posts that do not comply with the Forums' Rules, which do not allow discussions of politics and religion, will be deleted without notice.

If you have any questions please contact me or one of the other Jordanian moderators a pm.

I just saw her latest post an I think it was very good. She has a lot of issues to touch on and such a busy schedule it seems, that it makes sense to me to keep posts short, specialy since lot of people perfer short any way. I think it going well especialy with the reponses.

Exactly!

There is NO other high-profile Arab figure out there at this time (with the same international profile) speaking out on these issues, with perhaps the exception of Shirin Ebadi.

Perhaps critics would like to question why?

I have to agree that the change will come slowly. Queen Rania knows the social and political climate in which she works. IMO, she knows that she will have to introduce these changes slowly.

Press

An interesting piece in the current issue of Columbia Journalism Review

CJR: Choke Hold
Choke Hold: How Jordan tames its press

…When I edited the national news section of The Jordan Times in 2001 and 2002, I was often handed long press releases describing Queen Raina’s visit to a high school or orphanage that had to be printed unedited, along with pictures, as lead stories. Thousands of words praising King Abdullah’s directives to clean up a hospital or build housing for the poor, or his attempts to assist beleaguered Palestinian officials, would also run unedited—straight from the palace to the pages of the newspaper…

Thank you for the photos. This is one of the few times that I've seen the Queen wearing the hijab.
