The article analyzes gender inequality in education and employment and economic opportunity gaps in the Arab world. A Gallup poll in 2010 revealed an inverse relationship between gross domestic product (GDP) per capita and well-being of people in the Middle East and North Africa. Studies showed that men in Gulf states are not rewarded financially for post-university levels of education, while women are presented with fewer work opportunities. The mistake of allowing Al-Qaeda affiliated groups to reap financial shares and military support and the cultural rejection of the conservative shift of public discourse and extremist action are cited as factors that are crippling advances in Arab countries. Analysts propose a rapprochement between Western policy makers and non-violent Islamists.
