Aside from meeting with the area's political leaders the main focus of the trip was to meet with women leaders and discuss women's health, education issues. No doubt the subject of women in Islamic society came up and what a great contrast to have a strong woman like Laura Bush representing Western values and women's equality. See each link for more photos to learn more about the trip.

Excellent interview with Mrs. Bush on her return with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday! A highly recommended read!
