HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY

By Syma Sayyah, Tehran

 

Yesterday it was raining on and off all the time, but today the sun was bright and the weather was pleasant but the best news of all was that almost all of our friends were released very early this morning at about 2 AM.

 

It was an absolute delight to embrace and hold Parvin who to me is like a daughter as well as a sister and a friend, to see her safe and well.  This was the best present that I could have had for 8th of March - International Women's Day.

People like Parvin Ardalan and Noushin Ahmadi Khorasani, along with many of their sisters at the Women's Cultural Center have devoted their lives to women's causes not only now that is has become more prominent, but for at least the past 11 years that I have had the pleasure to know them and long before that as well.  In Iran like many other places some people join a trend that seems to be taking off. This has not been the case for these two wonderful hard working ladies, dedicated to women's causes.

 

Three of the ladies are still in prison and I sincerely hope that they will join their families and friends shortly too.  I also hope that the authorities would stop harassing their fellow women-citizens who only want us all to live in a better place with peace and harmony.

 

Happy International Women's Day to all free hearted women wherever you are.
