Of Tehran and Tucson

Misogyny knows no borders.

Last month, Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Kurdish woman from the provinces of Iran, was visiting Tehran when she was arrested and jailed by the country’s so-called “morality police” — the “guidance patrol,” as they call themselves — for wearing her head covering too loosely.

Three days later, she was dead, almost certainly killed by those authorities while in their custody.
