***
Iranian women in exile and hundreds of others are marching across Europe beginning in Germany on March 4 and ending up at the International Court in The Hague on March 8. This historic protest will highlight the just struggle of Iranian women against their oppression, and they feel strongly this march will help mobilize people around the world in the struggle against imperialism which they maintain is the "protector of male chauvinism in every corner of this world."
