at sassysagesays we often highlight girls/young women who are doing amazing things.

this time we are honoring Atena Farghadani. she is a 28-year-old Iranian artist who was recently sentenced to almost 13 years in prison for drawing a cartoon.   Atena has just two weeks to make an appeal so she can be released.

Michael Cavna, comic journalist for The Washington Post, started the #Draw4Atena campaign to ask artists around the world to bring awareness to her case.  i learned about it from one of my favorite website’s zenpencils.com which created the below amazing comic in her honor.  

let’s do our part and spread the word so Atena can be released!
