The woman killed for pop music - Afghanistan

Police said that they believed the killing was linked to her former job as a veejay video journalist on Hop, which was broadcast by Tolo TV, one of a number of private stations set up since the fall of the Taleban.

I hope the women there make Shaima Rezayee a martyr.

3. I know - I am always glad that I was born here
I read a book called "Reading Lolita in Tehran" that pretty much chronicles the erosion of women's rights in Iran.
