I will not wear the black head sack!
U.S. chess star refuses to attend world championships in Iran
10-1-16, WashPost -- The world's women's championship chess match will go on without the star player, MISS NAZI PAIKIDZE. She is in support of the women of Iran; announcing that she will boycott February’s 2017 Women's World Chess Championship in Iran because the players will have to wear hijabs.
“Some consider a hijab part of culture, but, I know that a lot of Iranian women are bravely protesting this forced law daily and risking a lot by doing so. That’s why I will NOT wear a hijab and support women's oppression.”
Gary Wastell, President of the Australian Chess Foundation (ACF), who believes Iran was the only country whose name was in the bid to host the 2017 Women’s Chess Championship.
He doesn’t “recall the issue of the headscarf being raised at that point”.
“The boycott is likely to be a serious concern,” says Wastell, ”But it’s a hard decision for FIDE. It comes down to a choice between accepting these rules and abandoning the entire competition.”
Miss Nazi Paikidze was born in Russia and raised in Tbilisi, Georgia, where chess was part of her elementary school curriculum, according to her biography. She began winning national tournaments and competing for international youth championships. When she turned 18, she moved to the United States to attend the University of Maryland Baltimore County, whose powerhouse chess team recruited her via scholarship. More
