International Problem of Abuse

"'How are Iranian women typically treated?' The government is systematically arresting women who sign a petition for gender equality. There were a number of these women in prison with me. (Haleh Esfandiari, a native-born Iranian who is an American citizen, imprisoned for eight months because she worked at the Woodrow Wilson Center, an American think tank that the Iranians believed were part of a network to overthrow the government.) The younger generation is thirsty to find out what is going on in the rest of the world. To rebel, some women flout the Islamic dress rules, paint their fingernails or wear makeup because their hands and face are all they can show."
Parade magazine, page 8, May 25, 2008.
