Well, it’s the hot topic here at Kuwait now, and among bloggers, so I wanted to say what I think about it
– Do they want it?
I know most of you would yeah! But why can’t we see it? Why aren’t they asking for it, demanding it, going to the street?
– Where are the demonstrations ?
Hit the street, if you can’t vote the only way to show support is to take it to the street, big rallies, show that there is really women who want it, that’s why some say they are going to rally a lot of women (not likely)
Show them you can gather more, 1000 women is not a big rally for something this important
– Victory has many fathers, defeat is an orphan
That’s a famous Arabic proverb, which is exactly what’s happening here
So having listed most of the ” major power ” that should claim he did it if women got to vote? In the end the government
– Do I think it’s going to make it this time?
I’m sure it would, why? Because this time the government is trying to rally people behind the idea for women to vote, this time it’s on the TV, it wasn’t on TV in 1999
Not to mention the backing of the government newspapers (alwatan)
– Can the government pull it?
Why even ask? The government hold all the cards in the game, the only reason its doing it to show it self as a force for democracy in the middle east, to show that they also care about women votes, Qatar got the spotlight when they let women and men vote, why not have some of that spotlight
– Is our democracy missing?
If you go by western standard yes its missing women vote, and to be complete women should vote
But that doesn’t mean it wasn’t there to start with!
That’s what I hate the most
People that say stuff like “ women vote mean democracy in Kuwait “, “ we want democracy in Kuwait! Let women vote “
No, not having women doesn’t mean you don’t have democracy, it mean you don’t have a complete one, just like the USA, they say their democracy is 400 years old, while women were only able to vote in the last 100 of it, they didn’t discard all the years before, they are still proud of it

What I think of women voting rights
If you asked me that question 3-4 years ago I would tell you women shouldn’t vote
Why did I think of that? For two reasons:
To begin with.
So in short, if they can get their voting right, good for them, if they can’t I’m not going out burning cars for it
