Iranian Women’s Liberation Movement: Year Zero (1979)

“Mouvement de Libération des Femmes Iraniennes, Année Zéro”
In 1979, Iranian Women invite the American feminist Kate Millett to celebrate March 8, the International Women’s Day, in Tehran. On March 7, the religious leaders announce that women have to wear the Islamic veil. From March 8 to March 13, Iranian women and liberals demonstrate in the streets against the veil. A crew of four French feminists filmed these historic events before being expelled the Islamic government.
