Mona Eltahawy in court over defacing posters: 'I'm proud of what I did'
Writer and activist Mona Eltahawy appeared in court on Thursday on charges of criminal mischief for spray-painting an anti-Muslim poster in a New York City subway station.
Eltahawy was offered a plea deal but chose to go to trial for charges of criminal mischief, making graffiti and possession of an instrument of graffiti.
"I actually look forward to standing trial, because I acted out of principle and I'm proud of what I did and I will spray-paint that ad again in a second," Eltahawy told the Guardian.
