AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah on Thursday took to Twitter to congratulate Jordanian women on the occasion of the International Women’s Day.

“The Jordanian woman is the pillar of our society, and without her extensive contributions, efforts, patience and sacrifices, the Jordanian family would not have developed and prospered. 

May God keep her for Jordan and for all its ctizens, and many happy returns for the women in our homeland,” His Majesty tweeted in Arabic, as the country joined the world in celebrating the occasion (see stories on page 2). 

HRH Crown Prince Hussein also congratulated Jordanian women by posting on Twitter.

“Jordanian women in every sector and position have proven themselves time and again in their ongoing dedication to the prosperity and progress of #OurJordan. We salute them on #InternationalWomensDay,” the Crown Prince tweeted.

THANKS TO HIS MAJESTY AND THE CROWN PRINCE FOR THEIR GOOD WORDS THAT REFLECTS REALITY RATHER THAN THE USUAL CODE OF SILENCE THAT MOST LEADERS ALL OVER THE WORLD THAT USE LIP SERVICES AND EMPTY PROMISES TO MAINTAIN THE STATUS QUO. WHILE HIS MAJESTY HAS SHOWN LEADERSHIP TOWARDS THE STRUGGLE OF WOMEN FOR EQUALITY, IT COULD HAVE BEEN EVEN MORE BETTER IF HE HAD USED THIS CELEBRATION TO SIGN OFF A MAJOR DECREE THAT HAS BECOME THE MAJOR OBSTACLE AGAINST
JORDANIAN WOMEN WHICH IS EQUALITY OF CITIZEN RIGHTS FOR WOMEN AS JORDANIAN MEN HAS IT.
