News that Shk. Khalifa ordered that children born to non emirati father but emirati mothers be granted citizenship is great news, and combined with Shk. Abdullah's interesting twitter posts deserve praise for new thinking in the federal govt.
Shk. Abdulla recently tweeted that to call someone's wife by her name (which is deliberately avoided by some men) isn't a taboo, and men should call their wives by their names, and not some vague reference.
Now, being recently married, this issue hits home with me. If I ever get a daughter, I'd be proud that these thoughts introduced by The Sheikhs, are addressing and protecting my daughter's dignity, and developing her rights as a member of society.
And maybe it's time to get active on twitter to see what else is being said...
