Everyone in the world knows that there is a major upset over the recent presidential election in Iran. But did you know that on the front lines are women? Yes, women! This is a country where women can’t work unless their husbands say so. I could not believe how many things women are forbidden to do. Iran believes in educating women. Over 65% of the students in the universities are women. How would you like to spend four years in college, graduate, and marry a man that refuses to allow you to work? Crazy!
WDE would like to commend you for your intellegence and your bravery. Today and until the revolution is over, I will wear a green ribbon around my wrist in recognition of your struggle. We also ask that for everyone’s girls night out you order a green apple martini and toast to the women of Iran. Raise your glass ladies, change is now!
