Audio B&WListen to the Interview

The US has won the unanimous backing of the UN Security Council for its plans for reconstruction in Iraq. Paul Bremer, the US administrator in Iraq has made it clear that he wants women to be active participants in the new government. Muslim countries traditionally offer few leading roles for women. Does the selection of the first Muslim woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize change the equation? Can democracy be realized in Muslim nations if women there do not have equal rights? We get views from Benazir Bhutto, former Prime Minister of Pakistan, an associate professor of political science, specialized on the issues of Islam and democracy, the founder and president of Women’s Learning Partnership, the director of an Islamic Center and a former U.S diplomat.
