Wordless Wednesday (A Clinton on the Gulf Peninsula, circa 2010)

I haven’t participated in Wordless Wednesday before (which is a meme for bloggers and Twiterati when either put up a photo without any text or minimal text, letting readers react). For my first Wordless Wednesday, I took inspiration from the hundreds of photos I’m looking over while trying to decide which ones to use for the book trailer From Dunes to Dior, my memoir about living in Doha as a South Asian American woman (more on this later). I’ve also put some links below the photo of other people’s Wordless Wednesdays so check ‘em out.

I chose this particular photo because it speaks volumes about modernity, international relations, and of course, women in power. This was during Hilary Clinton’s visit to Qatar, when she made a pit stop at Carnegie Melllon University in Qatar at Qatar Foundation to talk to students and faculty. The man on the far left is the American ambassador, and the one on her immediate left is the Vice President of Education at Qatar Foundation, Dr. Abdulla bin Ali Al Thani.

Leave a comment and let me know your reactions to this photo.
