in response to reader comment: CHoice to wear Hijab

Submitted by Jeff (United States), Oct 18, 2009 at 12:02

When women in the Islamic Republic of Iran are dragged off the street and thrown in prison for not wearing a hijab, how does that constitute a choice? Are you referring to the choice to wear what the government dictates or be thrown into a prison where lots of people are never seen nor heard from again? Not much of a choice is it? Or do those women need to be taught something about their RIGHT AND FREEDOM TO WEAR CLOTHING? And Evin Prison is the place to learn all about it?
