Fariba Rahimi joins a growing list of celebrities, models, and people from all around the world in speaking out about the women’s rights violations in Iran.
As you know, celebrities from all over the world have taken to social media to show their support and stand together against the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Irani woman who died under suspicious circumstances in Iran’s morality police custody.
Fariba Rahimi Is a Proud Iranian Supermodel and Entrepreneur
Fariba Rahimi, who is originally from Iran, has taken this to heart as the tragedy hit home for her. Fariba is an Iranian supermodel who fled her country for the very same reasons that Irani women are protesting for today.
We’re told she had always wanted to become a model but she realized seriously how the theocratic regime of her home country would come her way. As soon as this realization hit, Fariba took the wise yet difficult decision of leaving her homeland behind and moving to Norway to pursue her ambitions. Although a stranger in Norway, she felt more welcome in the Scandinavian country than she did in her very own homeland.
As time tells, this proved to be the most pivotal decision Fariba could take in her life. Soon after moving to Norway, not only was she able to fulfill her dream of becoming a supermodel, but she also became an entrepreneur by stepping into the world of real estate and construction. Fariba Rahimi took a break from modeling to become an entrepreneur as she established her own real estate and facilities services company. She put her heart and soul into her business and watched it grow into a million-dollar empire.
Once she was sure that her businesses were thriving, Fariba got back into the world of modeling with a bang. As soon as she got back, she partnered with Versace for various fashion campaigns and shows. She was spotted several times on the covers of different fashion magazines and billboards. As if this wasn’t enough, Fariba has also entered the world of Hollywood to explore opportunities in show business.
Of course, as an empowered, self-made woman the newest violation of women’s rights in Iran is very upsetting. To show her support, Fariba also changed her Instagram bio to “Women Life Freedom✊ زنزندگیآزادی”, which is the official slogan cried by the protestors in Iran’s streets, which translates to demand equal rights for women.
Angelina Jolie And Other Stars Use Their Voice To Support Women’s Rights
Today, as the world mourns the loss of Mahsa Amini, Fariba joins them in solidarity, followed by celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, and Bella Hadid. On September 29th, 2022, Angelina Jolie took to Instagram to show her support to the “fearless women of Iran”, she wrote. She reassured all the women that they don’t need to be re-educated, controlled, or policed by the “morality police.”
As you know, the murder of Mahsa Amini resulted in worldwide protests all over the world. Iran saw a huge number of women stepping out in support and cutting off their hair and headcovers to protest against the violation of their rights.
According to Fariba Rahimi, the inhumane, patronizing, and controlling actions of the morality police are an attack against human rights, not just women’s rights. It is the basic right of a human to choose how they want to live their lives. By forcing them to do something that they don’t want to do, you are depriving them of this basic right.
Other celebrities like Bella Hadid also took to Instagram and other social media channels to raise awareness and express her concern. She blamed patriarchy to be the main culprit behind Mahsa Amini’s killing and Fariba couldn’t agree more.
As the worldwide protests for equal women’s rights continue with the Irani regime being steadfast in their stance, celebrities and others with giant reach are pushing women in Iran and all over the world to be given the freedom to live their lives the way they want. In other words, they should not be told what to wear, how to live, and where to go.
It should be noted, Fariba also recently did a photoshoot themed on women, life, and freedom. She teamed up with the photographer Alain Egues, art director & makeup artist Einat Dan, stylist Hercules Terres, and hair stylist: Asier Aguiriano to come up with the bold and powerful look that represents women, life, and freedom.
Fariba Rahimi hopes for a world where women are given equal rights. She feels really heartbroken by the current situation in her country and is using her platforms to raise awareness about the atrocities carried out against women in her home country.
