In Memory of Sahar Khodayari

IN MEMORY OF SAHAR KHODAYARI It is called Esteghlal, It was the club of her heart Sahar wanted to support it, In a stadium of Tehran. Only men could enter For her club to support. Sahar dared to get in She defied the law. Not being a man, but a woman Prevented her from seeing her club playing. She ended up in custody, Until the bail, she could pay. She was taken to Court Where a sentence was given. She preferred to commit suicide Than accepting the Court conviction. As the Blue girl became known And like that will be remembered. For the Iranian women, The football doors, Will not be closed again. Raul Máximo da Silva
