Wolfgang Ischinger on the reasons to present the M100 Media Award to #WomenLifeFreedom

16 August 2023. Prof. Dr Wolfgang Ischinger, former Chairman of the Munich Security Conference and member of the M100 Advisory Board, on the decision to honour the #WomenLifeFreedom Movement of Iran with this year’s M100 Media Award:

“The resistance movement of Iranian women against the oppressive regime in Tehran is an inspiring example for all those who stand up for individual dignity and personal freedom.
It is my wish that this year’s award to the Women Life Freedom Movement of Iran will further strengthen the movement of courageous women in Iran and their quest for freedom. I cannot think of a more appropriate and worthy laureate in 2023.”
