Women's News December 2, 2010: Yemen

It's an all-Yemen post this time.

A neat article about Yemeni women becoming more interested in sports.  Some women-only gyms have opened, but are seeing resistance from some religious authorities.

A Yemeni woman runs the Sisters Arab Forum for Human Rights and doesn't wear the hijab either.  There are some scary statistics on the lack of women's equality in this article.

An article on the bizarreness of some children's names in Yemen, and how men usually get to choose them.
