The Shah of Iran's speech on "Women's Day"

The Shah of Iran's speech on "Women's Day"

Shahanshah begins his speech by stating that Iran before the rise of Reza Shah the Great had in essence been reduced to nothing but a name and the country was controlled by foreigners who had their own interests at heart.

Shahanshah then talks of how half of Iran's population was for the first time in 1400 years (of Islamic occupation) once again allowed to participate in the country's daily affairs through the decree of his father Reza Shah the Great (Liberation of Iranian Women), despite the efforts by the sworn enemies of Iran - the "unholy alliance of red and black" (Communists and Islamists) - who were working to reverse the country's rapid progress.

His Imperial Majesty points out the invaluable work of Iranian women and refers to their success by them having reached many high positions in society. Shahanshah concludes that despite these difficult times he will stand up against those foreigners and enemies who wish ill upon Iran and go ahead with the plans for more freedoms which are envisioned by the Revolution of the King and the Nation ("White Revolution").

good post! The late Shah was a great man who cared about Iran. The more I read about him, the more I miss him.
