Monumental Day in Kuwait

Women are voting for the first time in Kuwait. They make up half the electorate.

That's great. Let's not go into the expat vs. citizen thing here; only citizens can vote, and to be a citizen, you pretty much need to be born lucky. But what's important is that women are running for Parliament and going to the polls.

Hope the queues are inside. It's real hot in Kuwait in June.
