Today is the birthday of Neda Agha Sultan, the girl who was killed with her eyes open and left this world
Agha-Soltan was the middle child of a middle-class family of three children, whose family resided in a fourth floor flat on Meshkini Street in the district. Her father is a civil servant and her mother is a homemaker. She attended Islamic Azad University, where she had studied theology as well as secular philosophies, but she withdrew after two semesters of study for two reasons, one being a disagreement with her husband Amir and his family, and the other being the atmosphere and the pressure of the authorities towards her appearance and dress in the university. She was divorced, and according to her mother, had difficulty in finding work because of how employers perceived her.
