Face of the day

A reader was throwing out a bunch of old magazines and flicked through this issue of Metro (July/August 2017).

It had a lovely spread on Golly G talking about clothes – honestly the most frivolous article the Metro has ever done.
What self-respecting barrister would do this?

Even more interesting is Golriz Ghahraman’s opinion in the article on the hijab that Muslim women are forced to wear in most Muslim countries by the Islamic Male Patriarchy. Totally ignoring the fact that women from her country of origin, Iran, are risking their lives and freedom by defiantly taking off the hijab Golly G has this to say…

 I’m not a Muslim…but as a human rights advocate I’d  fight to the death for someone’s right to wear the hijab.

Golriz recently declined to speak up for Iranian women fighting to take off the hijab and cautioned others to not comment on the issue as it would be “unhelpful to the movement.” It is sad that she will “fight to the death” for their right to wear it but is unwilling to address their human right not to wear it.

Is Golriz Ghahraman going to be James Shaw’s co-leader? Do the Greens really want a co-leader who admits that the year she was born the hijab was made compulsory Islamic wear for women and in the same breath calls wearing something forced on her as a young non-Muslim girl in school by the Islamic Male Patriarchy a human right?

Do they really want someone who says ” the patriarchy tells you to be shapeless and desexualised” in the one breath and then defends the hijab which is all about trying to cover up a woman’s beauty in the other?
