    Good for them! It is nice to see Kuwaiti women being praised in the press.

    Good for them for taking the opportunities given to them and making a name for themselves, rather than living of daddy’s money. It takes a lot of hard work to get where they are.

    What a very sad list. And the criteria were? LOL.. Clearly says a lot about the integrity and credibility of the magazine.

    If I’m writing a novel based on Kuwait and looking for someone to give me an in depth view of the Kuwaitis caste and class system, does anyone know who I can speak to or communicate with. I’m having a hard time finding some one who can explain in English. I am based in NYC. Thanks
