Keeping Iran’s Heart Beating – Amnesty International

Women in Iran are often portrayed as victims – helplessly unable to stand up and claim their own rights. The truth, however, is that Iranian women are at the very heart of the human rights movement, and are some of the most courageous and effective human rights campaigners in Iran. Keeping Iran’s heart beating – stories of women’s rights activists is an exhibition which celebrates Iranian women’s rights defenders. It showcases the women, and the men, who stand up for women’s rights in Iran on a daily basis and seeks to tell their story. This exhibition, which is partly funded by TCD Community Initiative Fund, has been put together by members of the Amnesty Iran group in Ireland with support of Amnesty International. Following its launch the exhibition will be travelling around Ireland and Europe, and will be available for group, schools or local communities to host. If you would like more information on this, please contact the Iran Group (irangroup@amnesty.ie)
