Not even a single hair April 29, 2007

I simply cannot understand,  and  if I could I wouldn’t. Iran’s president Mahmud Ahmadinejad has approved a new campaign to ensure the use of the chador just to protect women. What a contradiction!!! The main reason is that 85% of agressions to women are because they do not wear the chador or veil properly, or are dressed in an “occidental style”. As a consequence, in just two days 1.347 women were notified by the police that they weren’t respecting the rules. 170 were arrested and the only way to go home was to ask a man of the family (husband, father, brother) to look for you.

What a pity! I thought we were living in the 21st century.  It’s time to guarantee full and equal rights to every single person.
