“Once again Iranian women are in the news – and not in a good way. Just last week some Iranian women were arrested for writing a letter to President Khamenei asking for an end to gender apartheid.”
“The concept of basic human rights brings me to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia where it was recently announced that Saudi women could leave the country without a male guardian.

This news, similar to when Saudi Arabia finally let women drive a year ago, was met with cries of adulation and applause throughout the Western world.”
