What an extremely brave woman. I hope she stays safe, as the extremists are known for having long memories and a violent sense of retribution.

Fortunately she's in exile, however the reach of the extremist is well known to be long. I hope she stays safe too.

True comments. Hope she stays safe, too, and those idiots don't try to do this to her.

I LOVE YOU...from always to ever...

Power to the brave women of Iran. Hopefully one day Iran will be free of it's Islamic god nonsense and government ruled by Islamic priests. Free Iran.

I HOPE SO...but let's wish if that's happen, next government gonna be better. as i know, what ever changed my country from 80 years ago to now, never got better,every time worst than last time...

sahar, good point - it is so sad to see a country deteriorate like that for 80 years. Surely we can blame religion for much of this. Unfortunately it will probably be many years before Iran escapes the negative impact of the Iranian priesthood. But I have my hopes though because it is reassuring to see that there is a least one sane atheist woman in Iran ;o)
