Going to Iran by Kate Millet (find the book in Kate's Millet's booklist) 
A feminist view of the Middle East 1979-80, from a time when some feminist still had the courage to be incorrect politically and speak for women who are silenced. 

An feminist names the crimes against women as eventual crimes against humanity - patriarchal crimes against humanity - read it and make the connections now with the gift of foresight. 

Now is a time when feminists should be pressuring our government to "regime change" in Iran . We could do it, if feminist would speak out for women as a caste and stop worrying about which party is in the white house. There is no "party" that is going to take the burden of organizing from the people. 

In Republics, aka democracies, the people must form associations of like minded people issue by issue. Individuals must stay organized to protect their rights against those who can purchase their rights.... And we have to win more people power tools such as referendum and ballot initiatives. 

Ask not if an action or reform is proposed by the Democrats or Republicans, ask only ; >Is it good for women?<. 

Regime change in the Middle East that IS good for women. Work with power to make it happen!
