Badass of the day.

Jinan.

Jinan is a thirty something woman from Basra. She is an engineer. She likes wearing jeans and makeup. She is a devout muslim. For the past five or so years she has been risking her life for not letting the extremists tell her what she can or cannot do. Snippet:

Jinan’s choice was stolen, but she refused to succumb. The engineer went to work every day in her snug clothes, meticulous makeup and flowing hair. Every day she prayed to God as well.

Signs near the police station warned women to veil and to remove their makeup. Women around her were being killed. In just five months more than 50 women were killed, police said.

This is what a badass looks like, ladies and gentlemen.
