No, this is not a post about the 1920s. Kuwaiti women are voting and running for public office today for the very first time. Big news, except for any major on-line news source in the United States (as far as I can tell from a Google News search, anyway). I heard the story this morning from BBC World News on my trusty public radio station, WHYY. Here's who has covered this historic event in their on-line editions today (as of 10 am anyway):
ISN (International Security and Relations Network)
and Metro Toronto (running the Reuters article).
