This made my day.
Mehrnoush Najafi, a lawyer who also happens to be a women’s rights activist and blogger, won in the Hamedan City Council Elections.
Eteraz notes that after the polls closed, Najafi wrote on her blog: “I am a candidate, therefore, I am.” He also gives us this great quote:
â€œWhy donâ€™t women want to have a larger share of participation?â€? Najafi continues, â€œWe shouldnâ€™t wait until they give us a share. We should go forward ourselves and be involved. Standing aside will do no good.â€? (Rooz.)
Women bloggers taking over the world…I’m telling you.
