Arab Women: They’re in Niqabs, Gettin’ in Ur Democracy

The Atlantic featured this picture on its latest magazine, which includes an article about the Arab Spring and the future of democracy in the region.

The article does talk briefly about women’s rights in the region, but it seems hardly fitting that there should be a woman wearing niqab on the cover with the fearmongering caption, “Is this the face of Arab democracy? Why the new Middle East is more hopeful–and more hazardous.” DUN DUN DUUUUUUN.
