Women of the World's Religions • Dr. Tahereh Ahdieh
Show Notes

I am happy to share Dr. Tahereh Ahdieh who shares her Bahai faith and the powerful story of her courageous and visionary Persian namesake, the 19th Century  Táhirih, "The Pure One."  Tahirih (Fatimih Umm-Salamih 1817- 1852) inspires today.   In 1852, at the age of 38, Tahirih was executed for her beliefs and activities. Her last recorded words were, “You can kill me as soon as you like, but you will never stop the emancipation of women.”

Dr. Ahdieh is a 7th Generation Bahá’í.  She shares the beauty of her faith and is simply captivating in her sincerity and wisdom.  She and her husband, Dr. Hussein Ahdieh teach about Tahirih, sharing this heroine across time and cultures.

From Dale Allen:

Let Your Voice Be Heard • Let Your Heart Be Inspired!

I was honored to be a part of a special project for the Parliament of the World’s Religions Women's Task Force: conducting interviews inside the first-ever Women's Village. The invitation put forth at the Interview Suite was:  Let Your Voice be Heard! 

In total, I interviewed 71 women. I was truly fortunate to sit with women as they spoke so profoundly from their hearts about their faith-in-action toward the Parliament's themes of:  a call to conscience, the support of the human rights and dignity of women, and the care of the next generations of children (which, of course includes care of our earth). This series of interviews gave me a sense of peace and reassurance.  The women are activated, and their love cannot be stopped. 
And I believe that you will find, as I did, that listening to women speak from their fierce hearts, empowers us as women to find our own voices and to take action from our hearts as well.   Please return each week for a new interview here.  And please help me share these women by subscribing!
With love,
