There are hundreds of people who are carrying on their battle in defense of rights, freedom, and life itself. On the one hand in Iran where protests began over the death of Mahsa Amini – stopped and arrested because she was not wearing the hijab properly – on the other in Afghanistan where women are denied the opportunity to attend universities and work in NGOs. Protests that see at the forefront courageous women who have decided to raise their heads, take to the streets and stand together against the force of such violent regimes. We stand beside them! Just as Shahrazad, the protagonist of One Thousand and One Nights, saved the women of the country and saved herself, managing to find a new story to tell every night, so we today feel the duty to continue to stand, with the art of speech and storytelling, beside the women and all the young people who are trying to build a better future.
Can we count on you?
On January 28, organize a Thousand and One Nights reading marathon in your city involving other people, associations, other young people and voices to make our solidarity come even stronger: #women #life #freedom
