I noticed someone started this board but no on has posted anything yet. I'll try to get the discussion going.

OK

Should women, from oppressive societies be allowed to come into our country under political asylum?

What if they are from, for examle, Saudi Arabia, where they can't vote, or drive, or wear nice revealing clothing in public? Do they deserve political asylum like the cubans got when they fled Castro?

What about women who have been individually targeted for speaking out against oppressive goverments? If they were targeted for promoting democracy we would probably give them asylum, shouldn't we give them the same if they support womens equal treatment.

Discuss, please.

Jerry
