Not Just "Flog" Spelled Backwards!

Women in Tehran are taking up a new hobby--GOLF! With a few relaxations in the dress code, more Iranian ladies are flocking to the links. Apparently, it was really, really tough to swing a wedge while wrestling with your chador.

Iranian Women's Dress Code Is Modest but Golf Friendly

Is anybody surprised by how modernized Islamic dress is looking these days? It's still pretty damn constricting/utterly unfashionable but it looks a lot different from the dress worn by most women in Iran just last decade. You can see the ladies' sneakers! Yes, I know the feminist movements in the Middle East have bigger things to worry about than clothes, but...sneakers!
