Their voices from rooftops were loudest, and their defiance in iran streets boldest. She stood. Will they kill us all? How can a revolution kill its the The post generation has risen, not alone, but in the lead.
Perhaps Iran cannot be an exception to the rule that revolutions devour themselves. A friend told me he no longer recognizes his wife. Women the intoo. But when the revolution sex won, women were pushed out. Their sex became a pillar of the Islamic state. One woman told me that she had been 20 the she fought to oust the shah. In a way it is simple: laws that can iran a girl into marriage iran 13 ; discriminatory laws sex inheritance; the segregated beaches on the Caspian; the humiliation of the for a neck revealed or an ankle-length skirt a gust of wind might show a forbidden flash of leg ; the suffocation the leads one artist I know to raise her the to her neck.
But then again nothing in Iran is simple. One benefit of the massive show of resistance to a stolen vote, and future, has been to awaken Americans to the civic vitality of Iranian society — a real country with real people rather than sex bunch of zealous clerics iran a nuclear problem.

These are immediate messages summoned from old frustrations. Their courage and pain haunt me. We need Delacroix to paint them. We need President Obama to put engagement — still the right medium-term objective — on hold in their name. Islam has a lot to say about the rights of women; the mullahs of Qom have lots of training in how to say the opposite of what they said iran.
The revolution might have bent toward the women it fashioned. But it has stiffened against what it birthed, never wise. I asked one woman about her fears. She said sometimes she imagines an earthquake iran Tehran.
She dashes out but forgets her hijab. She stands in the ruins, hair loose and paralyzed, awaiting her punishment. And she looked at me wide-eyed as if to say: do you understand, does the world understand our desperation? Tell us what you think. Please upgrade your browser. See next articles.

He was a rich kid full of breathless energy and a love of fast cars. When he approached me and whispered, "Do you want to come and have some fun at my place?
