TEHRAN.(Iranart) – An exhibition of cartoons on women’s rights in Iran will be held in Paris during January 2018.
The cartoons have been created by Pantea Vaeznia for the exhibit, which is part of the 1st Persian Speakers in Europe Art Festival, the organizers announced in a press release on Monday.
“This exhibition gives a real insight into women’s status and their rights in modern Iranian society,” said Vaeznia who has worked with Gol Aqa, a Persian satirical magazine, and several Iranian newspapers.
“Despite all the misinformation about Iran from foreign media, Iranian women are active in various cultural, social and political fields,” she stated.
“Iran’s patriarchal society has not only failed to keep women in homes, but also has caused them to strive for greater success,” she added.
“By this exhibition, I intend to change the improper views of Iranian expatriates about women’s status in Iran and convince them to be more realistic,” she noted.
Vaeznia said that her exhibition will familiarize visitors with women’s problems as well with their successes in Iranian society.
The Persiana Media Group is the main organizer of the festival, which will be held from January 13 to 20, 2018. The event is designed to introduce Persian art and culture to the world.
