No room for women in Somali politics in General Posted March 13, 2009 Originally posted by Foolxumo: Sex shouldn’t matter in politics. Let’s all be gender blind! Gender matters in islamic society, I dunno where you grew up in. But when men start giving birth, then I'll be 'gender blind'. As for women in politics, women should have voice there is no doubt about it, no point in excluding 50% of society from contributing.
