Mona Eltahawy’s article “Why do they hate us?” in FP and responses

Mona Eltahawy published an article about Arab misogyny in Foreign Policy yesterday which has definitely ruffled some feathers. I agree with her call for ending the cultural relativism and acknowledging all the political, structural and social barriers facing gender equality in many Arab countries but framework of “hate” is not the most useful approach and I  think the photos accompanying the article are really distasteful (not to mention totally unimaginative).  Check out some responses from other bloggers below…
