This political cartoon is just another great example of how different cultures are across the globe. Here in America, we are told that the appropriate swimwear to wear to the beach only covers about a third of our body. Where as in the Middle East, wearing a burka is what they are told is the right type of clothing to wear. Whether it be for religious, cultural, or fashionable reasons, women wear all types of clothing and I don't believe it is directly due to male influence. There are many things that could cause this influence such as the church, family, or the media. Yet as the cartoon says, each woman thinks the men in that country are forcing them into wearing clothes like that and their culture is dominated by men. I guess it just shows the different perspectives each culture can have.
This cartoon reminds me of what a fascinating time we live in with the internet and streaming videos. Just a few hundred years ago people thought dragons walked down the streets in china, now there are a handful of documentaries on the Chinese new year. Wars have been fought using propaganda of us vs. them but now I could skype with a kid in Syria right now and find out what he thinks and has seen. I hope as all of the world cultures acclimate to each other we adopt a live and let live mentality.
