Last week, a friend from Jeddah emailed me about one of her heroines: Tawakul Karman, a firebrand journalist, founder and chair of Women Journalists Without Chains. Karman is an activist and a leader on the front lines of the youth protest movement in Yemen. Viewed by many as Yemen’s Aung San Suu Kyi (of Burma).
