WOMEN, THE LAW & THE SUPREME LEADER
This movement is the beginning of very important changes in the history of Iranian women’s movement. After one year and a half it has gathered momentum and increased support and as a result we reached a conclusion that required some changes not only in our working processes but our priorities and values had to change.
This action was the beginning of an immense and important change in the Iranian women’s movement, so much so that within one and half years it provided the means for not only voicing the legal rights of women on mass level but also created the means for a high level perspective on activities on the ground and changes in our values in terms of priorities within the movement. Values and ideas which were mere clichés hence women’s issues were thrown open for discussion in our society at large, within the context of civil society. As a result the other important issue which we had to deal with was our organisational abilities towards a more practical and democratic method, hence "Feminist School Group" was the result of all the changes within the movement. http://www.iranianfeministschool.info/en
"The three monotheisms, animated by the same genealogical death instinct, share a series of identical contempt: hatred of reason and intelligence; hatred of freedom; hatred of all books in the name the one & only; hatred of life; hatred of sexuality, of women and pleasure; hatred of feminity; hatred of the body, of desires & impulses. Instead of all that, Judaism, Christianity and Islam defend: faith and belief, obedience and submission, a taste for death and a passion for the beyond, asexual angel and chastity, virginity and monogamic fidelity, the wife and the mother, the soul and spirit. In other words, life crucified and celebrated nothingness. " - Michel Onfray
Stop Violence Against Women
The absolute facts are that; real men are kind, humble, brave, respectful and tough. Real men are caring and protective of women. Real men have a clear understanding of the fact that women are absolutely equal to men. Real men perceive women as equal partners, not their property.
Also another fact is that; abusive men are cowards, weak and misogynists.
All forms of brutal violence towards women are due to men's sense of superiority and entitlement, instilled in them through the patriarchal criminal religious barbarism, upbringing and social conditioning.
Precisely the reason why women are seen, and treated as liability, subhuman, slave and subservient to men, but men are seen, as assets made in the image of a manmade mythical god, fabricated and widely disseminated by Judaism and its two derivatives: Christianity and Islam religion myths and their barbaric manmade religious manuals.
The Campaign demands an end to violence against women justified in the name of 'culture', 'religion' or 'tradition'.
