The Iranian female rower who gained the first Olympic berth for Iranian women, attracted billions of global audiences, international media and anti-Iranian lobbies while she carried the Islamic Republic of Iran flag during the opening ceremony of 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Homa Hosseini who was among the few female flag bearers of opening ceremony, marched ahead of 54 other Iranian sportspersons and now is in the FrontPage headlines of mainstream media.
Dressing light grass green attire and a white scarf, Homa Hosseini held the honorable, 3-colors flag of Islamic Republic of Iran and marched in front of thousands of reporters, political figures and audiences who were waiting to observe a new innovation from Iranian people who are famous internationally because of their artistic and cultural approaches during the history.
Choosing a female flag bearer for Iranian team by the National Olympic Committee was a defeating and decisive answer to those who wanted to pretend that the women rights are being violated in Iran, it also lead to a historical failure for Zionist and American lobbies in the field of their anti-Iranian black propaganda.
The US media reported that Iranian marchers were the messengers of love, peace and friendship from a misunderstood country to 4 billion live watchers and thousands of audiences attending in the “Bird’s nest”.
Homa Hosseini is one of the 3 women athletes of Iranian squade of 2008 Olympics along with Sara Khoshjamal Fekri and Najme Abtin.
Iranian Olympic Committe has predicted that there will be more than 500 Iranian sportspersons participating in 2012 Olympics, most of them females.
After the Islamic Revolution of 1979 in Iran, the personality and social importance of women in Iran have been increased abundantly and today, there are lots of women holding chairs in presidential cabinet and national Parliament.
Iranian women are absoultely free to participate in social, political, scientific, sports and cultural activities while there are thousands of female university professors, sportspersons and political figures in Iran and this shows that the western black propaganda against the situation of women in Iran is totally baseless and nonsense.
