Maryam Namazie

Maryam Namazie is an Iranian-born secularist and human rights activist, commentator and broadcaster. She is a spokesperson for Iran Solidarity, One Law for All and the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain.

Maryam Namazie (b. 1966) was one of the speakers at the 2016 Reason Rally. I bow to her amazing courage. She's got a blog - check it out. She's got some older writings on her old blog.

The text of Maryam's speech at the Reason Rally is here. Trying to find some videos. I wish they had had more firebrands like Maryam on stage. Speaking up like she has is a death sentence, according to the religiously insane.
