Voice of Revolutionary Women from Iran

Check out Revolution online at for these interviews with revolutionary women from Iran.


“A story of courage, vision, and determination to fight for a different world”

Revolution correspondent Michael Slate interviews S., an Iranian woman who traveled to Los Angeles to participate in the 2008 International Women’s Day action. Her experience as a revolutionary began as a student in Los Angeles during the days when the U.S. puppet Shah was in power in Iran. As the Iranian revolution drove the Shah from power, she joined thousands of Iranian students who returned to Iran to carry forward the aims of the revolution—a revolution which through twists and turns ended up being consolidated as the reactionary Islamic Republic of Iran. Through the years of revolutionary struggle, imprisonment, and finally finding revolutionary communist organization again today, her story is one of courage, vision, and determination to fight for a different world.
