Iran

I don't know about you, but I can't stop watching the news of the Iranian election fallout. Just amazing. Jezebel posted an interesting piece on the role of women in the protests, old and young, rich and poor. They also have the "Neda" footage, which is terribly graphic and sad, but you don't have to click the video to read the article if you can't stomach it.

A reminder of the importance of our voting rights here.

And a reminder of how important it is for us women to support each other--be it at home or abroad.

I worry that Iran will never find peace.

As a man I can not stand brutality against women. Yes it is one part chauvinism but also that this type of attack shows the weakness of men who attack the unarmed and defenseless.
