A group of young Iranian women were attacked by Iran's State Security Forces yesterday when they protested outside Tehran's main football stadium. They had bought tickets for the game, but women aren't allowed in the stadium, so they stood outside the stadium with banners. Threatening, right? They were attacked, forced into a bus, and driven away. I heard about it on the morning BBS news, but could only find a couple of articles online. Here's one.

The courage of these young women in the face of a hostile police force is amazing.
