    The Muslim Brotherhood HATE him - check out his one weird trick to demolish arguments for compulsory hijab in Egypt:

    In many ways Nasser was a grade A cunt, but his speech here is very significant for twenty-first century debates.

    theres currently some stirrings in iran over wether or not a woman may leave her hijab off in the car, wether the car counts as a private space.

    Also interesting that most Iranian media (even the conservative print rags which had photoshopped a hijab onto pix of her before) published a photo of deceased maths genius Maryam Mirzakhani with her hair cropped and uncovered.

    Iran is not like the Arab Muslim states
    I have good Iranian friends many of whom I have known for nearly 40 years
    They do not roll over easily

    Def something worth considering here before progressive lefties, liberals etc start wildly enthusing and defending the hijab (for certain cultures only, of course!)

    That said, I suppose a big consideration is this is from 1955-1960 I guess. Glory days of Arab nationalism and socialism. Egypt has changed. Islam has changed. The Muslim Brotherhood has changed (elected and then kicked out).

    Disgraceful! Even here in Turkey at the religious schools, little girls (ie before puberty) don't wear headscarves, and even after puberty it's up to them.

    Thought this was going to be somewhere down south, like Walton on the Naze.
