What she did in Iran will go down in history as a seminal moment. In an Islamist fascist ruled country, where misogynistic gender apartheid laws including forced compulsory Hijab is strictly enforced and violators severely punished, it takes monumental courage to do as Vida Movahedi did.
Last month, just prior to the outbreak of nationwide protests against the Islamist fascism rule in Iran, Vida tied her mandatory forced Hijab to a stick, climbed up on top of a utility box ln a busy Tehran street and just silently stood there waving it.
Vida was arrested by the Islamist fascist goons; however, her act of defiance has encouraged many others in various parts of Iran to do the same.
In other words, Vida is Iran’s Rosa Parks. Lets hope the unreformable, expansionist and warmongering Islamist fascists get the message that the jig is up and it is time for them to take their loot and vamoose.
Airtight sanctions, a la against the despicable South Africaapartheid, works. U.S. lawmakers get to it.
