Is this the beginning of the women’s revolution? If it is, it begins with a personal, individualistic act — which is how many revolutions begin. One shot is indeed heard around the world, especially in our cyberworld full of cellphone with cameras and YouTube.
And this action comes from two really young women, girls actually. CNN called it “Putting the ‘jab’ in ‘hijab’: Girls beat up Iran cleric when he tells them to cover up.” I love it.
This link comes from my friend Jerry Coyne’s e-mag, Why Evolution Is True, which in turn provides the link to CNN who reported it.
