What Tavaana Students Have to Say

I used to think there wasn't much of a point to pushing for women's rights reform under the Islamic Republic, but this course has changed my point of view entirely. While I used to think women's demands would only be answered with the fall of the regime, I am now motivated to take practical steps toward making those goals a reality, even under the current system.
