Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah opened the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Forum 2012 in Paris on May 22, 2012.

During the opening speech, Queen Rania highlighted the role that education plays around the world. “The solutions to addressing inequality are complex and multi faceted”, said Jordan’s Queen, “and I know that the shortest distance between inequality and shared prosperity is education.”

The OECD Forum takes part during the OECD week which is attended by CEOs, heads of NGOs and high level speakers with over 1,400 participants and guests.

    I so do agree with you.Jordan is the more modern of Islamic states.The Previous Queen Noor did everything she could to make the lives of Women there better and on an even footing.However Jordan is still and Muslim State where Honor killings happen frequently and woman are still fighting to have some equality.With the mind set of the Men there they have such an uphill battle.I never thought about why the Queen never wears a veil.Kitty you brought such a informing comment about it.Somethingis wrong with this picture.

    Royals are not supposed to look like downtrodden commoners. Rania is trying to give hope and inspiration rather than dispair. One can’t give the impression of a better future wearing wrinkled shabby clothing.
