Don't change the subject!
You said: "It's 2009 and most Muslim women still can't vote"
Nemesis proved you wrong and made you look like an ignorant di<k, and that's pretty much all there is to it.
Don't waste your time with bottom of the barrel individuals who's sole achievement rest on a pubescent and slightly retarded online personality.

Since you insist on looking like an idiot, please tell me since when Bruneian men have had the right to vote?

As for Lebanon, 1953 is a date you would of remembered had you bothered to look beyond Wikipedia (source of information for the ill informed). Go back to my first post and you might learn something ;)

You personify the bottom of the barrel losers I mentioned earlier.

In 1952 a number of Lebanese feminists and leaders of the campaign for women's rights met and agreed to unify their efforts in an association. The aim: to lead and give direction to the Lebanese feminist movement.

They formed the Assembly of Lebanese Women's Associations (later known as The Lebanese Council of Women) by merging the Lebanese Arab Women's Union (instituted in 1929) and the Lebanese Women's Association (instituted in 1947).

Their first victory was the adoption in 1953 of a constitutional amendment granting women the right to vote and get elected. This was the culmination of many decades of activism and struggle by women's rights organizations and their allies.
