The world is full of injustice and inequality, and those who
perpetrate discrimination, humiliation and oppression violate our natural rights as human beings. Moreover, the inequities and inequalities that women in many countries face are extremely serious; fortunately, there are scores of brave women in many communities who are fighting to uphold their rights, which are often removed quite suddenly and dramatically.
Since the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979, various women’s groups have fought tooth and nail for their rights, and women’s achievements in many different fields show that they have never lost hope.
We Iranian photographers have come together to show the life
stories of some of these women, in the hope that our photos, depicting their everyday personal and social existence, offer a window into the active lives and outstanding presence of women in all fields: political, economic, social and personal.
Our works convey a personal, truthful, authentic vision of all aspects of our reality, and an accurate portrayal of everything that the mainstream media and state-owned enterprises do not want the rest of the world to see.
