300 Iranian Women Arrested For Too Much Femininity...

TEHRAN, Iran — "With the arrival of spring, Iranian police have launched a crackdown against women accused of not covering up enough, arresting nearly 300 women, some for wearing too tight an overcoat or letting too much hair peek out from under their veil, authorities said Monday.

The campaign in the streets of major cities is the toughest such crackdown in nearly two decades, raising fears that hard-liner President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad intends to re-impose the tough Islamic Revolution-era constraints on women's dress that had loosened in recent years."

Mz Speaker? Pardon, Mz Speaker? What have you to say about this, Mz Speaker?
