Based on online skype chat we had together, Maryam was supposed to go to Babolsar city and consult with independent women rights cores on process of establishing Office of Women Rights Activists and how to discuss this issue with the new president Hassan Rowhani. The reason for consulting Rowhani was his presidential vows that all Syndicates must be independent .
