Honorable Mr. Kelvin Thomson, Member of the Federal Parliament of Australia who spoke at the exhibit said:

“This is a very important event to honor and celebrate 100 years of struggle for women’s rights in Iran and as I said I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to speak as part of that celebration…
Finally I want to salute the courage of those people in Iran who over a hundred years now have fought the cause of democracy, human rights and in particular women’s rights for the equal status, treatment and representation of women. It’s clear when you look at the displays that that has taken a great deal of courage indeed. I wish them every success in the future and I congratulate the organizers of today’s exhibition”.
