Meghan Markle Showed Her Support for Women and Girls in Iran With a Slogan T-Shirt

Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, showed her support for women and girls in Iran with a black T-shirt featuring the slogan “Women, Life, Freedom” written in Farsi. Meghan wore the top for a Women@Spotify event at the digital-music company’s LA headquarters, where she was joined by Archewell president Mandana Dayani and executive vice president of global communications Ashley Hansen, who are both Iranian.

“At an event today, Meghan spoke about the revolution being led by women and young girls in Iran, the courage and bravery they show every day, and their leadership and advocacy of basic human rights,” Dayani wrote as she shared a series of images from the event on Instagram. “As an Iranian woman who fled her home country in pursuit of these very freedoms, I could not have been more grateful for how she chooses, again and again, to advocate for women around the world.”

Protests have been taking place across Iran following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody in September. She had been arrested by morality police in Tehran for “improperly” wearing the compulsory hijab in public and died three days later. Authorities claimed she died of a heart attack, but reports suggest she was beaten by police before falling into a coma.

Since then, demonstrations have seen Iranian women burning their hijabs and cutting off their hair, while chanting “women, life, freedom.” Schoolgirls, too, have been taking part in the protests, sharing pictures and videos of themselves without their hijabs. Iran’s Human Rights Activists News Agency estimates that more than 200 people have been killed since the protests began last month.
