I am a journalist and civil society activist from Iran. I have worked for formal publications such as Deutsche Welle for 13 years and alternative media, including the first websites of the Iranian women's movement, back when I was still in Iran before 2009. Since 2009, I have been based in Europe but have never stopped thinking and working on issues related to Iran.
