Women of the Revolution: Two-fer to watch from today’s This Week

women-revolution-lama-hasan-uprising-middle-east-libya-egypt-human-rights-politics-13069528While doing Sunday chores, I got to see the cover of the redesigned and Tina Brown-ified Newsweek about to come out, with a very powerful image of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the cover as well as watch with great interest an all-woman roundtable discussing the role of women in the revolutions occurring in N. Africa/the Middle East (Yemen, Bahrain, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia for example).

Here’s the cover (I can’t find the articles online yet but I’m very eager to see that 150 women list):

And here are the two clips about women of the revolutions.  The first is a news item/reportage and the second is a roundtable conducted by Christiane Amanpour with Tina Brown (Daily Beast/Newsweek), Egyptian Writer/Activist Dr. Nawal El Saadawi, Zainab Salbi (Women for Women International ) and Sussan Tahmadebi (International Civil Society Action Network for Women’s Rights, Peace and Security).

You can see the 150 Women Who Shake the World here and the Hillary Clinton article here.
