A Milestone for Women in Saudi Arabia (2) Posted by on Mar 22, 2016 in Arabic Language, Culture

Marhaba! Hope you all enjoyed learning about the recent elections in Saudi Arabia. Truly, it is an important junctures for women in Saudi Arabia, the Arab world, and beyond. Let’s all look forward to and hope for momentous developments in our lifetime. There is a still long way, but at least we are making progress. With all the hatred and bigotry out there, we need to remain positive about brighter days ahead. Today, I want to share the answers to the listening comprehension exercise in the previous post. I will share the video again from the earliest post to refresh your memory and to keep you immersed with Arabic speaking natives! Enjoy.


للمرة الاولى النساء السعوديات أدلينا بأصواتهن وانتُخبن في المجالس البلدية
1) For the first time, Saudi Arabian women voted and ran for elections in the city/municipal councils.

2) Two women

رفض زملاء النساء المنتخبات الجلوس معهن على نفس طاولة الاجتماعات
3) The male colleagues of the elected women refused to sit with them on the same meeting table

4) Determination

جدل حول مدى التغيير الذي يستطيع أن يحققه تمثيل المرأة في المشهد السياسي
5) A debate regarding the extent of change that women representation in the political scene can achieve

Salam everyone! Born as an American to two originally Arab parents, I have been raised and have spent most of my life in Beirut, Lebanon. I have lived my good times and my bad times in Beirut. I was but a young child when I had to learn to share my toys and food with others as we hid from bombs and fighting during the Lebanese Civil War. I feel my connection to Arabic as both a language and culture is severing and so it is with you, my readers and fellow Arabic lovers, and through you that I wish to reestablish this connection by creating one for you.
