The Fight for Democracy: How Protests in Egypt & Iran Shatter Myths About Muslim Women

Anyone remember what one of the most striking images to surface from Iran’s uprising last summer over the fallout from the country’s so-called elections were? Iranian women protesting.

The world was shocked to see Iranians, 70% of whom are under that age of 25-years-old, pour onto the streets demanding their votes be counted. But what was equally confusing for the world to see was thehuge role Iranian women played in shaping this revolt against their government.

Why should people be surprised? Iranian women, who make up 65% of university students in the country, are also amongst the most educated in the Middle East. They have been organizing underground for years under a regime that specifically targets their rights. In fact at the end of last summer’s bloody protests, it was the face of a woman,Neda Agha-Soltan, brutally shot to death by an Iranian government sniper, who became the defining symbol for the “Green Revolution.”

No, I am not talking about the fall of a “secular leader” (read: oppressive dictator backed by the US) in a Muslim country, thus leading to the creation of an Islamic State. I know this is the big fear of the West and the US media that the fall of Hosni Mobark’s government, aka dictatorship, will only pave the way for Egypt to become the “new Iran.” Read the rest of this entry »
