Jordan's Queen Rania Launches a YouTube Channel

Jordan's Queen Rania Launches a YouTube Channel

Queen Rania of Jordan is asking the world to "send me your stereotypes." Jordan's Queen has just launched a channel on YouTube, because she wants people to see the real, unedited, side of the Arab world. She thinks the reality of life in the Middle East will surprise most who base their perceptions on simplified generalizations or shows like 24.

In order to reveal the personal side of her region, Queen Rania is asking everyone to send her their questions and concerns about Arab culture. Her mission is to "bring down stereotypes and build bridges between our virtual East-West communities."

World citizens are already taking advantage of the forum. One user wrote:

I am a 59-year-old American woman who firmly believes in equal rights for all men and women. Can you help me understand your culture's beliefs about the rights of women? My perception of women in the Arab world is based on seeing women wearing burqas or "having" to cover so much of their bodies in public here in the United States and in pictures from around the world. Why don't Arab men have to cover up? When there are demonstrations, where are the women? My perception makes me think Arab women are severely restricted in their outside world. Any insight you can provide would be much appreciated.

What would you ask Queen Rania? To see her first YouTube video,

I love this woman. She's been such an inspiration to me for a while now and continues to be.

I think this is awesome. I do not know much about Queen Rania, but from what I have heard, she is a very strong woman who looks like she can help her country move forward into an era much more friendly to women and it's citizens in general. I have a few questions for her myself. Thanks for the heads up!

It will be most interesting for me to hear the questions. I am very familiar with the answers already. Queen Rania is such a charismatic and intelligent woman. I, too, saw her on Oprah, and she did not let her fellow muslim women down. I was very glad to see that she held her own against Oprah, who's most annoying/stupid question (to me) had to be if she walked around with her tiara on! Rania tried graciously to let her know that when she was alone with her family, she was just like any other woman. It was totally lost on high-on-herself Oprah.

Great idea, stephley! Children often see through a lot of the cr*p out there that distracts the rest of us. Keep us updated!

I think I'll show this to my 12 year old, and see what questions she has. Between me freaking out over the war and her school friends with more conservative views at home, she should have a question or two that she'd like to take to the source.

I think what she is doing is great, I have read various articles and interviews from her, she is phenomenal. I think the qualities she hold more women in this world need them.

I really like her. I saw her on Oprah and she is such a strong woman who is really trying to break down barriers.
