Women's rights > blog > IRAN WOMEN’S DRAGON BOAT PREPARE FOR INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION

The teams of women from all around Iran are getting ready to compete in an international race in Anzali Lagoon in the northern Iranian province of Gilan.

Dragon boat is a human-powered watercraft which has its roots in an ancient folk ritual of contending villagers, which has been held for over 2000 years throughout southern China.

The history of dragon boats in competition reaches as far back as the same era as the original games of Olympia in ancient Greece.
