Lubna Admed Hussein Decision Postponed to Aug. 4.
READ Headline . .. I must run now. Anne here, waiting and weeping for news of Lubna Ahmed Hussein. I awoke at 3am — 10am Sudan time and can’t get her out of my mind. Reality is that women are flogged all the time, in many parts of the world.Lubna is just my heroine, the woman who prompted me to start speaking out again. My focus on Smart Sensuality women is bearing fruit. I...
Shakira, Madonna, Lubna, Marilyn: A Decades-Old...
I just wrote in RedTracker News: The most thoughtful Smart Sensuality women understand that the battle to control female sexuality may be the biggest fight in the history of civilization. It has taken me most of my adult life to embrace what I have known since I was 16. Control of female sensuality has been a lynch pin of most cultures for eons. I’ve lived with ‘forces’...
Feminists Fail to Speak Up for Lubna Ahmed Hussein
I just dropped a note to columnist Robert Fulford, of Canada’s Nation Post, supporting his position that feminists have been very quiet about Lubna Ahmed Hussein — As Muslim women suffer, feminists avert their gaze. A plug for Anne of Carversville’s efforts on this topic would have been appropriate, given our Google visibility. Fulford’s correct that Western women have...

When the London Times writes of ‘heel strike’ and harnessing pedestrian human power in supermarkets and railway stations — well I...

Lubna Ahmed Hussein Update
This morning’s call with Lubna was rescheduled, but she is fine. We will be opening a separate channel on Anne of Carversville, to track women’s rights issues, such as Lubna’s, Amal Habbani, and Wajeha Al-Huweidar — if Wajeha wants our help.

Anne, Lubna, Amal: Women on the Road to Somewhere
My life is changing, but in a good way. I just posted an article on Anne of Carversville about another Sudanese journalist Amal Habbani, editor of the column “Tiny Issues” in Ajrass Al Horreya (Freedom Bells) paper after Amal wrote an article on 12/7/2009 supporting her colleague Lubna Al Hussein. I’m learning how Facebook, Twitter and the Internet are interconnected and can give a face to...
