So I get that the times they are a changin’ as Bob Dylan once wrote and sung. The #MeToo movement and all the scrutiny that the world has put on how women are treated and listened to. Playboy no longer displays a monthly foldout. These are serious changes and certainly for the better. Women have long been subjected to a whole different set of rules and their status is now finally being looked at with real change in mind. So then why am I writing about women’s status and talking about a volleyball tournament in Qatar that won’t allow women to compete in bikinis? It would seem there’s a bit of cultural discrimination going on here. When I read the article it talked about how this particular country is “the only country” which mandates female players to wear shirts and long trousers. Beach volleyball in a shirt and long trousers….hmmmm…I dunno, but it does seems a bit restrictive and they allow men to play in bathing suits or shorts. So read the piece and let me know how you feel about this!
