Hey ladies - how do you judge a political wife who stays with her husband through a sex scandal? Personally, I want her to drop his cheating asses the second she finds out about the infidelity, and I get annoyed when they "stand by their man." But perhaps I'm thinking more along the lines of what I want for women's rights as a whole, and less about what each individual wife wants for her marriage. If progress for women's rights is about choice, then perhaps I should learn to respect women like Huma, and their choice to stick with their husbands.
