Bellicose Women In Space

Fresh off her successful mission as the world’s first female space tourist, first female Muslim, and first Iranian in space, pioneer Iranian-American astronaut Anousheh Ansari (a.k.a., the “Hot Interstellar Millionaire Iranian Babe In Space”, as one clearly crazed blogger once described her), has updated the photo section of her Website. It now includes a slideshow featuring several photos of her firing an impressive looking rifle of some sort.

I wonder if the mullahs back home, and her fellow Iranian women are aware of these images, and the power of their symbolism.
