Islamic republic just sentenced Nasrin Sotoudeh, a human rights activist and lawyer, to 38 years in prison and 148 lashes (basically a life sentence because she's already 55). And that's after she already spent 6 years in prison.
Why? Because she represented imprisoned Iranian opposition activists, including women arrested for appearing in public without Hijab.
And now Iran gets seat on UN Women's rights committee. lol
- UN Women's Rights Committee is the BEST place to INCLUDE the most sexist, women hating countries!!! WHERE ELSE would they LEARN about women's rights? There's NOTHING to worry about! NOTHING will go wrong!!! NOTHING!!! #Inclusivity #Diversity #LoveTrumpsHate

i actually live in Iran and it's ridiculous seeing that people around the world feel sorry for Iranian women because they have to cover their hair while we're struggling here everyday of our lives because of the stupid policies made by our own incompetent government and western governments. why do people just focus on women when everyone is suffering here. i don't expect you to believe this but men are having it much worse than women in Iran. the only reason you don't hear about it is because men don't get as much sympathy as women.
