Peter Hitchens in Iran

Peter Hitchens' Persian diary -- part one

By this time I am almost wholly obsessed by the women's great rebellion against the Ayatollahs. The unintended effect of all this imposed covering up is to make Persian women - most of whom are very attractive anyway - seem even more alluring. Their bearing is unlike the hunched, submissive carriage of black-clad Muslim women in Europe or the Arab countries.
