 “This is My Freedom”
November 05, 2012

Recently, a 2.33 minute Youtube video produced by female students from the University of Jordan as an assignment for a Feminist Theory class created a lot of controversy.  The video intending to shed light on an important issue; sexual harassment of female students on campus created a lot of controversy but not the one you would expect or hope for; one that would make way for dialogue that might help find a solution to a prevalent problem.

The controversy it did create was that after the posting of the video, Rula Quawas , a much liked and respected professor was fired from her post as Dean of the Faculty of Foreign Languages. Administrators at the university stated that the video had a harmful effect on the reputation of the university thus justifying the firing.

Watch the video and let us know your thoughts? Was the firing justified?  Should Dean Rula be reinstated? Should the University of Jordan have a discussion about sexual harassment with students and put into place regulations to prevent it? (Read the article from the source!)
