For young women growing up in the Middle East, life is anything but easy. While American feminists are fighting a so-called wage gap, for the rest of the world’s women and girls, there are far more pressing fights. In many countries, it’s impossible to leave the house unaccompanied, to have hair uncovered, to drive a car, or to obtain an education past middle school.

This week First Lady Michelle Obama visited Qatar, one of these backwards Muslim countries, and gave a forceful speech on many of these injustices. The Guardian reported on her remarks,

The US first lady, on a seven-day trip to the Middle East, told an education conference in Doha that an “honest conversation” was needed around the globe about how women were treated and how it stopped millions of girls finishing their schooling.

“If we truly want to get girls into our classrooms then we need to have an honest conversation about how we view and treat women in our societies and this conversation needs to happen in every country on this planet, including my own,” she told delegates at the World Innovation Summit for Education.
