Thank you for giving me this opportunity to express my voice. The debate on Saturday night was such an important one. I arrived in Chicago with my son, 13, ironically, my “mehram,” or legal male chaperone in countries including Iran and Saudi Arabia. But, in America, he was what he is: my wonderful son and not my chaperone. The debate was challenging because the dynamics of deflection expressed themselves, but I was embraced with love and open mindedness by so many in the audience. I thank Chicago for its hospitality. Warmly, Asra
