JORDAN REJECTS LAW WHICH GAVE WOMEN THE RIGHT TO FILE FOR DIVORCE
The temporary law has been found to be contradictory to traditions and Islamic teachings, and was thus rejected by the lower house of Jordan's parliament. It will now pass to the Senate. More from the BBC.

You've gotta know the women's rights advocates will jump on this. Or are they too busy protesting the American military presence in Iraq (in "free Palestine" t-shirts)?
