On the Margins of the Fateh Convention
There are no women in Fateh's newly-elected central committee. Only 18 studs. The token woman they used to have, Intisar al Wazir (Khalil al Wazir's widow), didn't get enough votes. Neither the other 5 women running for the 18-seat committee. (in English)
Let's keep our hopes that they do better in the next central committee elections...in another twenty years!
