Thought Of The Day 09242022 #iran #hijab

Religious head coverings such as a hijab or yarmulke are worn out of love and devotion. In some countries, religious laws require women to wear hijabs and it shouldn’t be like that. It should be an option and would have more meaning if free will was the case.

In Iran, a twenty-two-year-old woman was beaten for shedding her hijab and later died. That is a horrible tragedy and now the women of Iran are protesting. I support those women who are standing up for themselves there.

Right now it’s hard to be a woman because religious zealots desire to control their lives. They also face abuse and violence. Women deserve better, they deserve respect, and they deserve freedom to choose in a myriad of ways.

Let freedom ring for our mothers, sisters, wives, cousins, friends, and others. It’s the 21st century after all or so we thought.
