IWD Speeches

Excerpts of remarks at roundtable discussion, "Women in Leadership, the Experience of the Iranian Resistance" – Tirana, IWD 2017

When I was invited last year, it was for us to see how this struggle can learn from the way we organized the anti-apartheid movement in the 60s and 70s and 80s. And what's interesting is that when we tried to approach different people they said no, no, no, no, that’s a terrorist organization, the PMOI. And when we said no, no, no, it's led by this woman and have you seen some of the tapes of what she says, nobody had seen them. So we played some of this stuff from Paris and we’ve really made a lot of progress.
