Iranian Women's Rights Fundraiser

The Faravahar is the best-known symbol of ancient Persia -with a winged sun disk and a seated male figure in the centre. It is thought to represent Ahura Mazda, the god of Zoroastrianism.

This twist on the traditional Faravahar design replaces the man with a woman and incorporates the national slogan of the ongoing Iranian Protests - زن زندگی آزادی - woman, life, freedom.

The origin of the slogan can be traced to the Kurdish women's movement, a part of the Kurdish freedom movement which was founded on grassroots activism in response to persecution from the governments of Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria.

The slogan became a rallying cry during the protests in Iran which occurred as a response to the death of Mahsa Amini, a Kurdish woman. 

All proceeds until February 15 2023 go to the Center for Human Rights in Iran (CHRI) - an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization working to protect and promote human rights in Iran.

Available in a T Shirt, Hoodie, Hat, and Sweater
