Arabian peninsula

The Arabian Peninsula is a mainly desert peninsula in Southwest Asia at the junction of Africa and Asia and an important part of the greater Middle East.

The coastal limits of the peninsula are: on the (south)west, the Red Sea and Gulf of Aqaba; on the south(eastern) coast, the Arabian Sea (part of the Indian Ocean); and on the northeast, the Gulf of Oman, the Strait of Hormuz, and the Persian Gulf.

Its northern limit is defined by the Zagros collision zone, a mountainous uplift where a continental collision between the Arabian plate and Asia is occurring. Geographically, it merges with the Syrian desert with no clear line of demarcation. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabian_Peninsula [Nov 2005]

Attitudes towards Women

Continuing with international evidence, Faust (1982) studied countries with the most and least equality achieved between men and women. She found that in nations like the U.S. and the Scandinavian countries which highly value women's equality, pornography was widely available. In contrast, in countries repressive towards women, like Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the former Soviet Union, little or no pornography was available.--Faust, B. (1982). Women, sex, and pornography.
