The Spiritual Leader, with the titles of Tahirih Qurratu'l-ayn, began the emancipation of women in Iran in 1844 and her Voice rings out again today to continue the process She set in motion.
With spiritual authority She ended the past outdated systems and opened the portal for a new universal cycle now dawning.
Right now in Iran the 41 women who applied as candidates for Presidency have been barred by their Council to run according to a video Dr. Juan Cole has on his site in conjunction with his book 'Engaging the Muslim World'. The young want a government which stands for justice and equality and sixty percent of those at University today are women, contrasted with no education for women in 1844. Tahirih's Dream is True, and will continue to unfold.
The film stars Shanta Maree Surendran and can be viewed on line.
