Neda Agha-Soltan, Iranian woman shot
I know this goes a bit beyond the subject of girls' education, but I was touched by this video.
Neda Agha-Soltan, an Iranian woman, was shot to death during one of the recent protests against the election results in Iran. She was studying philosophy at the university. Many Iranians are calling her a martyr because she died for "freedom." To watch the New York Times video on this woman's death, please click here.
