Women in Iran: Repression and resistance

While Westerners often pretend to be concerned for human rights in Muslim countries, they hardly if ever give recognition to the struggles of the women who are fighting for their rights. Here is an article about Iranian women’s struggles.

"Iranians are the first to know how easy it is for a whole nation to be reduced to the rants of a senseless politician, or for images of a handful of shroud-wearing crazies burning the American flag in Tehran to reach the western media's front-pages. But how easy is it for thousands of Iranian teachers protesting outside the Iranian majlis (parliament) - as they did on Saturday 3 March 2007 - to merit any attention?"
