June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
This short video, called “What Do We Value?”, is produced by the UK Baha’i Office of Public Affairs. It explores these questions: The pandemic has provided an opportunity to re-think what we, as a society, consider to be of value. What is it that propels our society forwards? How can we cultivate these values? What can we change about our society?
