The Iran Heritage Foundation (IHF) is proud to commemorate Women’s
History Month and International Women’s Day on the 8th of March.
This is an occasion to elevate women’s history and to spotlight women’s
unacknowledged achievements.

‍IHF continuously strives to preserve and celebrate Iranian history as
human history. As one of the oldest civilisations in the world, Iran has
made innumerable contributions to the world as we know it. This
profound influence is often invisible as it is woven into the fabric of
human culture – from religion, politics, philosophy, language, literature,
horticulture, cinema, music, fashion, and beyond. Women’s contributions
to this history, and human progress overall, go unseen far too often.

On this International Women’s Day, the IHF is proud to recognise
the countless contributions of Iranian women spanning the course of Iranian
history – from ancient civilisation in 550 B.C. to today. It’s worth
acknowledging that the Iranian Women’s Rights Movement first
emerged after the Constitutional Revolution as far back as 1910. 2023
also marks the 60th anniversary of the grant of suffrage to Iranian
women. Honouring and recognizing these contributions is an act of
reclaiming power in the pursuit of equality while celebrating Iran’s long-
standing traditions. The IHF is grateful for the historic and present-day
contributions of women worldwide, from Iran and beyond.
