In Persian mythology, Si'morgh, was a winged, bird-like creature that was very large and extremely ancient.. It has a 500 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs that it then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. The bird was also said to regenerate when hurt or wounded by a foe, thus being almost immortal and invincible it is also said that it can heal a person with a tear from its eyes and make them temporarily immune to death. The phoenix is a symbol of and divinity Also the translation of Phoenix in Farsi is 30 birds.
Like the bird, Iranian women are rising out of the ashes of a revolution that happened thirty years ago and today they stand together as one. Standing up for their rights as an equal to rebuild their country. Teaching them, inspiring them and helping them out of the dark cycle of abuse.
