Iranian Protest Babes? [Ace]

Iranian women are getting cranky. And you know that when women get cranky, women get results.

The protest was the first public display of dissent by women since the 1979 revolution, when the new regime enforced obligatory veiling. "We are women, we are the children of this land, but we have no rights," they chanted. More than 250 marched outside Tehran University, and about 200 others demonstrated two blocks away after hundreds of riot police swarmed in and barred them from joining the main protest.

There were reports that the police clubbed several women, though there were no hospital reports of injuries. Demonstrators said they saw some women being detained and dragged away by officers. But the situation appeared to stabilize, and after about an hour of demonstrating, the women disbanded without further incident.

Has the Protest Babe Phenomenon hit Teheran? I hate to further swipe from Betsy, so I'll just try to tease this bit:

Yet, candidates are aware of the role women can play in their election and have employed young, liberal women to campaign for them in a gesture that suggests they favor more freedom for women.....

The article states that these women are basically politically mercenaries, using sex appeal to sell candidates who talk up reform but do little else.

One hopes that they begin Protest-Babing in earnest. It would help the cause of freedom, and I sure could use another spate of pics of chicks in tight little baby t-shirts.
