Where beauty is a crime

Iran, of course.

Yesterday, a crackdown against women began. The police are stopping, fining or arresting women who allow any of their hair to be seen, or who wear colourful clothing. The fine is $50, the arrest can lead to an Islamic court.

More pictures here and here.

Via The Spirit of Man - one of the expat Iranian bloggers who deserves our support. Our country needs to do whatever it can to help the Iranian opposition bring about their own regime change.
