Ayatollah Khamenei Joins #YesAllWomen


The #YesAllWomen hashtag emerged following this weekend’s UC Santa Barbara killing spree, and it has managed to attract a rather surprising supporter: the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.


In his tweets, Khamenei criticizes Western culture for creating an environment where women are sexualized and objectified. Khamenei points to Islam as properly balancing sexuality with humanity.

Despite his expressed concern for women in the aftermath of the killing, Khamenei’s government has far from a stellar record on women’s rights.
