no photos from the Formula One championship in Bahrain so far.
I'd have loved to see some off-duty pictures of Queen Rania after such a busy few days.

this article is about Natalie Portman, but the last part is about her involvement with FINCA, one of the many microfinance organizations Queen Rania is involved in:

She is very involved in FINCA, a charity she encountered through Queen Rania of Jordan.
"It does micro-financing, which is small loans for women with under $3 a day in developing nations. I've been to Uganda, Guatemala and Ecuador with them."
It's mostly about women and children, and, says Portman enthusiastically, the effect of the work done by FINCA is seen in one generation. "The mother gets the loan and opens a business and then the daughter is going to university. It's an amazing part of a plan to eradicate poverty," she says, "which is, obviously, an idealistic hope."

Apparently, after all she's the only woman to ever wear make-up and buy expensive clothes.

Egygptian and Lebanese newspapers both have articles on Jordanian women's rights. They are quite political in nature but both mention Queen Rania so I thought would be interesting to post.

"The latest attempt at such legislation was made by Queen Rania, who sought to amend the Jordanian Nationality Law so as to give Jordanian women married to non-Jordanians the right to obtain Jordanian nationality for their children. This effort faced strong resistance from conservative Jordanians who feared the ramifications of such an amendment on the sensitive demographics of the country: some sources estimated the proposed amendment would grant immediate Jordanian nationality to more than 50,000 Palestinians. In the end the Cabinet was authorized to grant nationality to children of Jordanian women married to non-Jordanians, but only on a case-by-case basis. "

AMMAN, 15 March (IRIN) - Jordanians in 40 out of 101 of the country's municipalities live below the poverty line despite an overall decline in national poverty levels over the past few years, according to a senior government official. Twenty of these municipalities, meanwhile, are considered extremely poor..........

Poverty alleviation is a prominent feature of the so-called "National Agenda", a wide-ranging blueprint for reform commissioned by King Abdullah II last November. According to the plan, the government will undertake a number of reforms in coming years in hopes of halving extreme poverty by 2015.

JORDAN’S King Abdullah II addressed, via video, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) 11th annual fund-raising dinner at the Crystal City Marriott Hotel in Arlington, VA on Dec. 3, 2005. After first thanking American Muslims for their support after the Nov. 9 bombing in Amman, the Jordanian monarch also thanked Muslim Americans for their condemnation of those who kill supposedly in Islam’s name. “Together we stand in defense of the essence of the religion of Islam,” King Abdullah said. “American Muslims can provide an important example of how Muslims from around the world from all schools of thought can join together. American Muslim life reaffirms the core values of Islam.”
