From Prophecy to Reality:
"Woman, Life, Freedom" in the Poetry of Hafez

از فال تا حال: «زن، زندگی، آزادی» در شعر حافظ

Discover the secrets of Hafez’s visionary poetry and its prophecy of ‘Woman, Life, Freedom’ unveiled by Safa Mirror. This thrilling lecture intertwines the timeless symbolic poetry of Hafez with the radical vision of ‘Jin, Jiyan, Azadî.’

As a court poet, Hafez cunningly wove critique of oppressive powers into enchanting metaphors. His poetry whispers of a world transformed by worshipping the Beauty in our midst, embracing an ecstatic Existence, and doing whatever one Wills. Though these notions threatened rulers of his age, Hafez proclaimed that hypocrites are never right in judgment.

This revolutionary lecture threads together Hafez’s symbolism of the Beloved (معشوق), Wine (شراب), and the Tramp (رند) to reveal the message of the Kurdish slogan ‘Woman, Life, Freedom’.

This event will be in English and some parts in Farsi. For further questions or to sign up for the session, please send an email to
