Women’s liberation movement is the greatest threat to Islamism International Women’s Day Special

Bread and Roses TV with Maryam Namazie and Fariborz Pooya, 10 March 2015

Shocking news of the week: “human rights organisation†CAGE justifies the beheadings carried out by British jihadi Mohammad Emwazi.

Insane Fatwa of the week: From ISIS and its directives that women mustn’t slap their thighs!

Good news of the week: Maryam Namazie’s topless action in support of women’s rights and against Islam and Islamism.

Discussion of the week: We show a film made by Femmes Filment on the historic protest against compulsory veiling in 1979 in Iran and discuss it. 8 March International Women’s Day must commemorate the 1979 protests of Iranian women against Khomeini’s compulsory veiling order which captured the imagination of people across the world. T
he protests were suppressed by brute force and the control of women and their bodies a basis of the regime in Iran. Nonetheless, the women’s liberation movement against the veil and Islamic rule is the greatest threat faced by the regime today.

The historic film of the 1979 protest against compulsory veiling in Iran we show in the programme is not ours. It was made by ’des femmes filment’ and is being re-shown for educational purposes only.

Director: Reza Moradi
