A Real Feminist

Video: Iranian woman tears off her hijab after Muslim cleric tells her to fix it or he’ll have her arrested

This woman’s face has been blurred for good reason. Her fate may be the jail, the whipping post, or the noose. When confronted on the street by a cleric who threatened her with arrest because her hijab was being worn inappropriately, she let him have it with both barrels. (Klikit for more text and a vid.)

Where are feminists who so bravely wage war against fetuses and traditional marriage?  Where are the Code Pink ladies and their big pink vagina signs meant to sexually shame and shock the oppressive white male establishment? In a world where a husband can kill a wife or daughter for reasons of honor and walk away unscathed by little inconveniences such as laws concerning murder, this woman shows true grit and courage. She took a real risk in standing her ground. She is worthy of respect.
