New revolution in Iran?!

Sat, June 13, 2009

Zahra Rahnavard is galvanizing Iran - before the presidential voting, and now in the election’s tumultuous aftermath. She tells a Tehran audience, “Today we can close our eyes and see ourselves. Never have women had so much self-awareness. Women have always been just under the skin of history. Today, we assert ourselves.”

The LA Times is onto the story, and says of her:  “Some in the Iranian and Western news media have likened Rahnavard to Michelle Obama, but she more closely resembles Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former first lady and New York senator whom many considered a driving force behind her husband’s political career and presidency.”

Thank you for linking to our report about Zahra Rahnavard.
We’re watching the news from Iran as anxiously as the rest of the world, and hoping for a peaceful outcome. 
It’s nerve-wracking though.
