Basij Camp And The Aftermath Of Rape

Just a little plug for one of our new blogs at RFE/RL.

Persian Letters offers a window onto Iranian life by translating and showcasing the works of Persian-language bloggers.

This week, a member of the Basij force and blogger, writes about her experience attending a Basij camp and a physician writes about the aftermath of prison rape.
