No cares if you wear the hijab. No one cares if you wear purple hair, for that matter. But in Iran and elsewhere in the Islamic world, women are forced to wear the hijab, beaten and/or arrested if they don’t. The punishment these courageous women in Iran are now facing is a stunning indictment of the hypocrisy of the evil left in the West, with its World Hijab Day and promotion of the hijab as a “choice.” The real “feminists” are fighting for a fraction, a sliver of the freedoms their Western “sisters” enjoy.
Remember: this is the country the Democrats are fighting for, opposing President Trump’s efforts to stop them from nuclear arming.

If they are found guilty of inciting corruption and prostitution, they could face up to ten years in prison….
‘Rather than threatening women with jail terms for claiming their human rights, the authorities should immediately abolish the discriminatory, abusive and degrading laws and practices of compulsory veiling.’
The recent wave of defiance started with Vida Movahed, a 31-year-old mother-of-one whose protest and subsequent arrest on December 27 became headline news all over the world.
A video showing her calmly waving her white hijab tied to a stick above the crowds in the Iranian capital, went viral on social media.
Ms Movahed, who became known as The Girl In Enghelab Street, was released over the weekend, after spending a month in custody with her 20-month-daughter….
