This was originally published at the news in arabic.
“I’m trying to tell if this cartoon from al-Sharq al-Awsat is sexist or not. The Arabic word on the tidal wave of women crushing the man reads “al-’anoosa” or loosely translated, singledom — a reference to a growing “problem” in the Arab world of women remaining single for whatever reason.
I honestly don’t know much about the “phenomenon” of women remaining single in the Arab world or how people interpret this but my first instinct is to say that the idea of a single woman being a “problem” is ridiculous.”
So, readers? What do you think?
