Neda Agha-Soltan‘s legacy (whose name in Persian means, ‘voice’), is honored by Persian poets, Sholeh Wolpé and Simin Behbahani, Iran’s National poet.  Ms. Behbahani’s travel was blocked last March when she tried to leave Iran.  Listen to an  interview with the ‘Lioness of Iran’ on NPR’s Weekend Edition.
