Feminism, Fashionistas And Freakouts

...concerns about sex outside marriage have kept most from going as far as secular schools in mixing genders in dorms. While it's not unheard of for Christian colleges to have opposite genders on different floors of the same dorm, most opt for separation by wing or even building...

...Oops!! That's a story from the Christian Science Monitor, in which [in 2007, mind you] "Not all parents oppose students cohabitating on campus." Sorry.

The story that goes with the picture, on Iran's fashion police :

For the first time live models have been allowed to appear in a fashion show in post-revolutionary Iran. According to the law, a woman who does not cover her hair and body in public can be fined or imprisoned for up to two months. But many of the women on the streets of Tehran do indeed look more like Western fashion models than the models on the catwalk. In skimpy tight overcoats and high heeled shoes and token headscarves perched on the back of their dyed hair, they are what the authorities call "western dolls".

Hot stuff.
