You will surely be hearing about this explosive video business and about the 35-year-old entrepreneur who heads one of the biggest players, the biggest in America by some measures.
But you might not hear all that much about how she managed to escape Iran as a teen, leaving her family behind to arrive in Vancouver, speaking almost no English.
When she received no response, Ms Farghadani chose to record a Youtube video describing exactly what had happened to her inside Evin prison (shown at the top of this article).
On 17 October 2014, for example, she was beaten and strip-searched by two female guards.
At a time when Britain has reopened its Embassy in Tehran and a procession of European foreign ministers, including Philip Hammond, has visited Iran, Ms Farghadani’s ordeal demonstrates how the Islamic Republic’s treatment of its own citizens remains harsh, arbitrary and profoundly unjust.“They never had the chance to sit down like this and talk about their children,” said Alinejad, gesturing to the crowd.“[The government] tried to keep them silenced, but the only voice you hear coming from Iran is mothers.” Alinejad said she desperately misses her family.Alinejad’s public display of independence and the subsequent expressions of freedom by other women did not go unnoticed by Iranian authorities, who already knew her name well.At age 19, while pregnant, Alinejad had been jailed for distributing leaflets and posting graffiti that criticized the Islamic Republic.Ms Farghadani is sometimes reported to have been locked up because she published satirical cartoons of Iranian MPs.
