Well, here's so more (mostly) good news. Remember that women's rights advocate I blogged about a few weeks back? Esha Momeni was arrested in Tehran, Iran, on October 15 for charges that would eventually be stated as "propaganda against the state". The thing to note is that she was in Iran working on her CSUN grad thesis on improving the worldview of Iranian women.

So, naturally the Iranian government would take that as propaganda against the state.

Anyway, so, the good news is that she got released yesterday on bail. All her Iranian family members had to do was give the police the deed to their home as a guarantee that Momeni wouldn't flee the country--flee the country? Why would she do that?? :P

Regardless, this is good news. Momeni was being kept in solitary confinement, apparently. Not good.
