Female blogger wins Iranian City Council election

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:

“Why don’t women want to have a larger share of participation?� Najafi continues, “We shouldn’t wait until they give us a share. We should go forward ourselves and be involved. Standing aside will do no good.� (Rooz.)

Women bloggers taking over the world…I’m telling you.
