BARAYE We Yearn For Freedom
BARAYE Women Life Freedom

BARAYE, the song in this short video by Shervin Hajipour has become an international anthem for women's life freedom.  Women around the world have joined the Iranian women, and all women, who are not free to make their own choices about their life.

The ongoing yearning for freedom by Iranian women erupted after the death of Mahsa Amini on September 16, 2022, by the Morality Police in Tehran. This incident sparked spontaneous protests throughout Iran which is a reflection of a decades-long desire for freedom and automony in this Islamic regime by Iranian women. Now they are demanding sweeping changes in Iran and are committed to having their voices heard despite the intensely violent reaction of the Iranian government.
