Women's rights activist Bahareh Hedayat is serving 10 years in prison for protesting gender discrimination under Iranian law.
Please sign this petition by Amnesty International for her release.
In the face of adversity, Bahareh remains a beacon of light and hope.
In a letter she wrote, “With our hearts together, we united and although disadvantaged in an unfair battle, we fought against tyranny with empty hands. Not only in the streets but also in our hearts, we chose to be calm and collected, but also when confronted with cruelty, our sorrows multiplied.
Until such a day as flowers blossom far and wide and the breeze of knowledge blows from every town and village, we envisioned our universities full of colorful and scented flower arches, not prison cells.”
