In this talk, produced by Bahaiteachings.org, Pegah Nabili tells the story of Tahirih, 19th-Century Iran’s most courageous woman, who removed her veil, defying cultural customs, to announce that a new culture of equality had dawned. “Her fight reminds me,” Nabili says, “that the fight for progress is not won by passive words, but by bold action.”
