As Econo-Girl trolls the international news for juicy and amusing tidbits, she is struck by the absence of Iraq on many front pages across the world. She is also struck by the headline stories about Oprah EVERYWHERE.
That woman is the most powerful woman on Earth! She headlines in SouthEast Asia, Europe, and Africa with her effort to "change how a woman is seen in Africa." My goodness, and Econo-Girl thought Hilary Clinton was ambitious.
For roughly fifty thousand years, the African culture has been developing just fine without Ms. Winfrey. Granted, women are treated like crap in some places there. It will be interesting to see if Ms. Winfrey will be able to pull this off without the usual violent backlash that attends a change like this.
In Pakistan, the rise in women's power there has led to men randomly throwing acid in the faces of women in the street. Let's hope Ms. Winfrey's planned transition for Africa will go more smoothly.
