This is fascinating, given that one argument for the walk out was a
dispute over strong regional autonomy (federalism, anyone?) as well as
failures to protect Sunni participants. It doesn't help women much, at
least directly, but slowing the process down surely does.
I am totally ignorant about whether *our* constitutional convention had
arbitrary time limits imposed on it, or whether for pragmatic reasons,
they pushed to a conclusion.
