I can’t even imagine what it must feel like to be one of the women on the front line of the protests in Iran- full of fear that if you stay, you might be killed – brutally murdered.  If you go, you would continue to lead a life of misery.  I say misery, because these women are highly educated and yet forced into domesticated servitude and discriminated against.

The internet is teaming with first-hand accounts, photos, videos, tweets, and interpretations of the conflict.  For me, Jezebel has been a good resource because it breaks down the basics and incorporates quotes and stats from all of the major news outlets.

Read this article (via MeghanAsha) to hear accounts of the incredible passion and strength of the Iranian women.
