Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just finished reading, really interesting.  I know it keeps being said but gender equality is still a far off concept for so many countries.  

The more that people become mobile the more opportunity there is for cultures to mix and influence each other.  I very much hope that cultures where women are more equal continue to influence how women are valued and treated in other countries.

Some of the stories in the article seem too shocking to be true and there is clearly a great deal more work to do to change attitudes and cultures.

But even in our modern, 'enlightened' Western cultures, gender inequality is still rife even if not so overt.
