When I first saw that scene of the film, in NYC in 2003, I started to cry. It had been 11 years since I stopped wearing hijab and it would be another 17 years until I shaved off my own hair. I rewatched the film soon after I shaved off my hair and that scene still seized me.
Replying to @monaeltahawy
When you shave the hair under that enforced hijab, are you then the revolution of one? When you rip off that compulsory hijab in public and shave off your hair in public, are you finally completing the revolution that the theocrats stole from you? feministgiant.com/p/essay-women-…

What does hair have to do with the revolution? There is a scene in Abbas Kiarostami’s film Ten when a woman sitting in a car in Tehran traffic gingerly removes her hijab to reveal a shaved head. youtube.com/watch?v=26skpt…

I wrote about the long history of shaving women’s hair when I wrote about two violent boys setting my hair on fire… this violent patriarchal obsession with our hair

What does hair have to do with the revolution? The Iranian Revolution was co-opted by the clerics who then claimed as an achievement the mass covering of an entire nation’s women’s hair. #IranProtests2022 #MahsaAminii

What does the revolution have to do with hair? During the Irish Revolution, both sides would forcibly shave or cut off women’s hair as punishment as well as a way to control women’s bodies. irishexaminer.com/lifestyle/arid…

It is no surprise that the Iranian regime accuses the Saudi regime of orchestrating the revolution that has erupted in fury at Mahsa Zhina Amini’s death. Two theocracies so alike in their hatred for women and whose zealotry has for years wrecked lives in the region.

No one was put on trial. Parents were silenced. The only concession to the horror was that girls’ education was quietly taken away from the Salafi zealots washingtonpost.com/archive/opinio…

I thought of the 15 girls who died in a school fire in Saudi Arabia, in 2002, after “morality police” in that country barred them from fleeing the burning building—and kept firefighters from rescuing them—because the girls weren't wearing headscarves & cloaks required in public

When I heard that #MahsaAmini, a Kurdish woman in Iran, died after being in the custody of the “morality police” who'd taken her in because she wasn't wearing a “proper hijab” I thought of other female lives sacrificed on the altar of a piece of cloth feministgiant.com/p/essay-women-…

Somehow all seems to be easier in my N. German home village. Past menopause, to me that is aunt Hella, tall, permanent wave, never been slim, on a women‘s birthday coffee: „Gimme another piece of cake, figure is gone anyway, haha“, everyone roaring with laughter. She‘s 100 now..

I’ve covered #Iran for 15 years and lived there for 25 yrs. I believe what we are witnessing now is nothing like before. Look at these two women, standing on top of police cars, shouting: we don’t want the Islamic Republic… #Mahsa_Amini #MahsaAmini pic.twitter.com/b90yteFuMt

We came through fairly well. We lost a few trees but there is no damage to us, our house, or vehicles. I’m concerned for others in our region who were hit very hard, though. The devastation on the news is terrifying. My elderly parents are safe and have a generator.

I'm glad to hear you're alright!

I’ve been thinking about this essay all summer, as I turned 55. And perhaps appropriately, I finished it last week quite feverishly while on a liquid diet preparing for a colonoscopy. I mean talk about fully embracing the middle years. feministgiant.com/p/essay-menopa…

A feminist revolution disobeys all those who insist “People are not ready,” because as revolutionaries we must recognize that if our communities are ready for us, we are too late.
