Iranian Blogger: Ban from Finals for Nail Polish
|June 19, 2012|
An Iranian blogger, Masoud, recently wrote a blog post highlighting the pressure Islamic law puts on women in Iranian universities.
“A friend of mine studies at one of Iran’s largest universities” Masoud wrote. “I called her yesterday and she wasn’t very happy. Apparently, one of the university’s morality officials summoned her and banned her from taking her finals as a punishment for wearing nail polish in the university.”
“Because she only had one semester left before graduation, she begged the official not to report her nail polish to his supervisor. She finally had to sign a letter promising that she would never wear nail polish in the university again.”
“As she was leaving the room, the male official told her, ‘You are a cute girl. Watch out!’ She recalled, ‘I couldn’t even respond. I just left the room.”
