<nettime> Women and multiculturalism


Hi, trying to figure out something on women, multiculturalism and 
international relations, what international law can do. Women and 
multiculturalism seems to be women against fundamentalism, not just in 
western countries, the western modern lifestyle against an archaic 
lifestyle. "Honor" killings etc. But I dont want to see it from a 
western point of view. For me it is about poverty and participation. 
Life in Afghan villages, selling kids, brides, to rich neighbors as one 
case, women and football in Iran as the other. There are two ILO 
programs, women at the workplace and the women entrepreneur. I have the 
idea that it is a slow process, to go with tanks into Afghan villages is 
useless, we have to be patient. Women and football seems to be a good 
idea by the Iranian president. As spectator in Iran, but see also the 
Palestine women football team.....

Poverty and participation, what have I overlooked?
