women in society.

her to remove the dye from her hand, even if it is once with henna and even if she is of not young.» Iranian Woman, A Character of Power

valuable gifts to their wives. As in Zoroastrianism, one day of the year is named Women’s Day. This ceremony was also called the “MozdGiran” in
