Be the voice of the voiceless… In solidarity with women fighting for their rights, from US to Iran
“Women, Life, Freedom”
She rises… her hair flying in the wind… her voice lifting to the sky… her being becoming the fire that melts the frozen grounds of time… SAY HER NAME… say it loud… Mahsa Amini the 22 year old female whose death enflamed thousands of women and men to rise up. For, the future IS female… and #metoo is a global movement of our time… A monumental uprising for feminism and women rights, against police brutality and oppression is happening in Iran right now… Say Her Name… Be the voice of the voiceless…
