Beautiful in So Many Ways
The woman pictured is a former Miss Canada. She was working on her first record release, when she took a detour.
Nazanin Afshin-Jam, the woman in the picture, took up the cause of another Nazanin - that one Nazanin Fatehi is the woman originally condemned to death for stabbing a man trying to rape her.
Yeah. It puts the issues of sexual harassment in proper perspective, doesn't it?
Afshin-Jam used her influence with the Iranian government to win Fatehi's release. But, you probably didn't see her in the headlines. I doubt she even rated a footnote in the press.
They were busy with more important celebrities.
