Repression by Iranian clerical regime

"Two women have been arrested for breaking “revolutionary norms and values” after being filmed riding a motorbike in IranOfficials in the city of Dezful said they had “exploited the opportunity” presented by a lack of police in a national park to commit an “obscene act” worsened by the spread of footage online.Colonel Ali Elhami, a local police commander, told the state-controlled IRNA news agency the women “committed an action against revolutionary norms and values by riding a motorcycle”."  You can't pretend you are against repression of women in Iran and not be against repression of women in Saudi Arabia--and vice versa.
