      PRINCETON, N.J., March 30 (UPI) -- The majority of respondents in all
      but one of eight mostly Islamic countries surveyed in a Gallup Poll
      agree women should have leadership roles.

      The majority range was wide, from 54 percent in Egypt to 92 percent in
      Lebanon. Only Saudi Arabia, with 40-percent approval, fell below the
      50-percent mark.

      Other countries included Turkey at 86 percent; Iran 78; Morocco 74;
      Pakistan 58; and Jordon 55. Overall, about nine out of 10 of those
      asked in Lebanon and Turkey agreed that women should be allowed in
      leadership positions.

      Gallup World Poll surveys were conducted in eight countries between
      August and October last year asked respondents to agree or disagree on
      the supposition that "Women should be allowed to hold leadership
      positions in the Cabinet and national council."
