WOMEN AND THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS FEATURE ON BILLBOARDS IN IRAN.

An image of prize-winning mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani on a billboard in Tehran in a new campaign set up by the city's mayor in Tehran, Iran on March 13, 2018. A soldier, war photographer and an Olympian are some of the women gracing public billboards in Iran's capital Tehran in a rare move in the conservative country. The billboards showcase the achievements of ground-breaking Iranian women, including the late mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani who in 2014 became the first woman to win the Fields Medal - the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for mathematics. She died in 2017 aged 40. Photo courtesy Tehran Municipality Twitter
