Tahirih the Pure is arguably one of the most important visionary women of our time...

in the darkest days of oppressed 19th century Iran she precipitated events that majorly influence gender equality today. Television scriptwriter & editor Bev Matthews (profile at bottom of page) has teamed up with award-winning filmmaker Ruth Beni to tell Tahirih’s audacious story to the world in 2019. Ruth’s company Animage Films holds an impressive track record for reaching wide audiences so... check out the above (highlighted) links to let your imagination run wild on how Tahirih's extraordinary story will fly up, out and into the mainstream for all to hear ... in this, the Bab's Bicentenary year!

Production on this exquisite animated film begins in two weeks !

For the advancement of women (and men!), justice and unity... THANK YOU!
