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.

Let's all understand the difference between being famous, and being important. Nazanin Afshin-Jam deserves credit and celebrity both for knowing the difference and for acting on an important cause.

More than a pretty face.
