A woman for our times

Melissa Silverstein of the Women's Media Center has posted her first entertainment blog entry for Huffington Post, where you will be able to find her musings on culture high and low.

For her opener, Melissa tells us of a new documentary about Mukhtaran Mai, the Pakistani woman who defied local authorities to prosecute the men who gang-raped her on the order of a tribal council. The case now sits before Pakistan's Supreme Court, which is having a little trouble functioning these days, what with dictator and U.S. ally Pervez Musharraf having sacked the chief justice, a move that has sparked underreported violence throughout Pakistan over the course of the last month.
