Women in Iran are rebelling
Dr. Sanity has the following post about women in Iran protesting about wearing the hajib:
"Na Roosari, Na Toossari" (No Veil, No Submission)
Hundreds of maverick Iranian women and female students have gathered in front of Tehran University in order to protest against Islamic regime's backwarded policy of Gender Apartheid. Hundreds more men and male students have joined them in support despite heavy security measures and presence of regime's brutal plainclothes men.
Stefanie at Free Thoughts has incredible pictures of the protest. Women were beaten and ten journalists were arrested. Go to both sites to get all the information.
It has been suggested that the women who are suffering under Islam will have to lead the way. It looks like some are beginning. Please e-mail your Congressmen and President Bush and tell them to condemn the barbaric beatings that the Iranian government has done. ACT NOW, the people of Iran must know that we Americans care about them.
