Image advertising the exhibition "Khorshid Khanoom" and its merchandise sale.
In solidarity with the Woman, Life, Freedom movement in Iran, our exhibiting artists Jasmine Djavahery and Zahra Hooshyar co-designed this wearable art which reads "Khorshid Khanoom", "lady sun" in Farsi, as a symbol of the feminine power leading this fight for freedom. Your purchase will support the the partnering non-profits, Sovern LA and Middle East Matters.
Sovern's collaborative team who put together the Khorshid Khanoom exhibit and programming thought long and hard about how to be of best use in solidarity with the current revolution unfolding and the courageous women putting their lives at stake to fight for their human rights in Iran. Youth and female led felt like a fitting partner as they share news that is rarely reported outside of domestic news outlets in the Middle East. The organization finds first-hand sources on the ground and then amplifies their voices to unite a new generation of activists standing up for each other across nations.
