جهان زن ـ هیلا صدیقی در پاسخی روشن و دقیق به مهدی خزعلی دلایل سکوت خود را بر شمرده است. نوشته ی او نگاه نسلی است که باید نسل امیدش نامید. اما در این پاسخ، نکته ای هست که خوب است از کنار آن به راحتی نگذریم. هیلا می نویسد”شايد به همين خاطر بود كه هيچ گاه آرزوي براندازي و انقلاب در سر نداشتيم . چرا كه اصل براندازي ايده آل ما نبود .
