Mahsa Amini became a symbol of resistance, women’s rights, and freedom not only under the tyrannic regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran but all across the world. Her name meanwhile resonates as a parable for all female individuals across the globe who wants to be vocal standing for their equity and women’s right. So we must not forget her name, hence, designating the name of this square as Mahsa Amini, would encourage female migrants from suppressive countries and also their peer women to be more aware of their rights and privileges.
