ANN CURRY: DON’T LET US SEE YOU IN THAT HEAD SCARF AGAIN!
This morning we were greeted with the TV image of Ann Curry, whom we love, On the Today show interviewing Iranian dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and she was wearing a HEAD SCARF! Our blood started to boil. The somewhat soft content of the interview that was described as “too kind” – pointing out how hard the man works- was NOTHING compared to the humiliating and demeaning fact that Ann was forced to dress like a second class female citizen in that country. She is an American and should NOT have to bend to Muslim rituals while interviewing the preening Hitler of the Middle East. It was an insult to women everywhere. What would Gloria Steinem think? Please Anne, don’t put yourself in an inferior position like this again. You should receive equal treatment in an interview.
