Enough IS Enough
You see, a law requiring women to wear headscarves isn't just about controlling women. It's about controlling speech. It's about controlling the entire Iranian population.
Iran has some of the most educated women in the world. The majority of its university students are women. In math, science, and engineering, 70% are women!
The first female mathematician to ever win the prestigious Fields Medal was an Iranian woman: Maryam Mirzakhani.
The untapped potential of Iranian women (and people everywhere) is breathtaking.
And what’s even more breathtaking is the bravery of women throughout the country. Since the death of Mahsa Amini, Iranian women are standing in front of the police, openly burning their headscarves in protest, risking their lives for freedom.
And sadly, in the past week, many of these protestors have been killed. It's unacceptable... women’s rights are human rights.
Innocent people should never die at the hands of their own police, in any country. And when you watch injustices repeated, year after year, eventually you decide enough is enough. And that’s happening, right now, in Iran.
In the words of the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
