"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Dedication to the Women of Middle Eastern Music, Part Three: Googoosh of Iran

Part three in my week long series honoring women musicians out of the Middle East...

Here is "the most celebrated singer in Iran" performing a sad song about her homeland:

The title of the song is "Man Hamoon Iranem" which means 'I am Iran."

Thanks to Sedayehneda for the English subtitles.
