Feminism is not about sticking a woman in our face.

Meet Heather Nauert. She may be the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Till a little while ago, she was a fox news anchor at Fox and friends, the show Trump watches intently. 

Since 1996, it seems Nauert has been a contributor and correspondent at Fox. Last year, she was offered a State Department spokesperson role as a Spokesperson.

The position justifying her nomination to the United Nations to fill in this highly academic public policy job has been that the Trump Administration wants to promote women to roles as these ones.



This is not feminism. This is a joke. Enabling women does not mean giving them jobs they are not qualified to do. It encompasses making sure they have the credibility to be able to do the job they are being asked to do. 

Just two months ago, Heather Nauert posted a picture on her Instagram of herself smiling in the Royal court of Saudi Arabia after the journalist Jamal Kashogi was murdered and dismembered.
She has no depth of knowledge about international affairs as she has publicly voiced support for KSA's role in the Yemen war where thousands of children are dying of hunger. She supported the war politically when the Canadian ambassador was expelled by the Saudi Government for demanding the released of an imprisoned human rights activist.

Her candidature does not seem right.

To call this feminism is a farce. Feminism is not about charity. Feminism is not about creating an uncreditworthy hierarchy. The fundamental value that the skills of a person bring to the role needs to be the basis of the choice of the person for this appointment.
If the choice still needs to be a woman, I am sure there are more qualified women in the US State Department with years of solid public policy experience who can fill the shoes to represent our country well.

The choice for this role should not be who Trump trusts and likes but who the right person qualified for the role is.

It's not a man or woman. It's about qualifications.

The Clock is Ticking : BACKWARD FOR WOMEN

Sometimes it is just a customary sound; but a movement that takes us backward; instead of steering us forward.

2017 and 2018 have been the most regressive years in the progress of women. 

Since Trump became the President of the United States of America, a new culture of suppression of women rights has unleashed worldwide.  He has slowly degraded Women Rights by attacking fair pay legislation, defunding reproductive rights and changing the definition of violence against women. His attitude towards women is evident from the way he treats women and his objectification of the whole gender. In response, the women rights movement has revived itself, only to become negative and vicious.

No one wins when we have to fight. It is still a pity that we have to wave flags, march, hoist posters and commemorate each other on this day every year. We should not have to. 




The global economy could be enriched by about $160tn (£120tn) if women earned as much as men.

Avaya is out of its Chapter 11 Bankruptcy . I remember our first Avaya Project

Those were the days! Being one the largest resellers and specialists for Avaya Customer Interaction Centers and then their Distributors was just another story.

I was going over my old archives and came across the first time we won the Project of the Year Award for delivering the most impossible software and hardware integration of a customer interaction center in 90 crazy days and nights in Doha. I don't think the team slept for more than a year. We wouldn't go back home for days and live in fear of downtime ad infinitum, ad nauseum. The cost per minute of downtime was $60,000.

There were no weekends, there were no vacations. All we knew was to deliver this most important opportunity of our lifetime.

When we did get the time; we would get into monopoly warzones in the employee housing to keep sanity or watch pirated dvds of Prison Break and nonstop  Keifer Sutherland's 24.

It was just a never-ending spiral to build a company, to work so hard to beat a market that had never…
