Description du produit

Revue de presse

A well-documented and persuasively written examination of the change in Iranian women s status under the country s secular and religious governments...maintains an engaging tone that makes it easy for casual readers to follow the arguments. - Kirkus Reviews 'Knowing our history is knowing ourselves. Nina Ansary expertly reveals largely untold stories of the multifaceted women of Iran and their perseverance to overcome considerable obstacles.' - Alisa Miller, CEO, Public Radio International (PRI) I am a big fan of women speaking out, telling their stories, using their voices - and author Nina Ansary has used hers in an astonishing, important way. Her Jewels of Allah is brave, authentic and riveting. What a compelling example of why women NEED to tell their stories. Read this. -- Kathy Najimy, actress/activist This must be included within the Essential Reading lists of all schools- it is a vital historical account, a necessary and refreshed analysis particularly for our 21st Century culture of fear climate. - Marcella Karamat, Curator/ Freelance Writer, The Hollywood Reporter Nina Ansary s book is a must-read for anyone hoping for a fuller understanding of the role of women and the women s rights movement in Iran. It is a much needed antidote to Western misconceptions. - San Francisco Book Review 'The women of Iran have no greater champion than Nina Ansary, nor does anyone equal her in explaining the seemingly paradoxical expansion of women's education since the Iranian Revolution.' -- Richard W. Bulliet, Professor of History, Columbia University --

Nina Ansary, with clear and precise language, laser-like focus and deep knowledge, lifts the veil of news media neglect and ignorance hiding the experiences of women and girls in Iran. Women's eNews is delighted she regularly shares her insights and inside knowledge with its readers. - Rita Henley Jensen, Editor in Chief Women s eNews, New York 'This is essential reading on Iran, and feminism, human rights, and social movements. The book turns itself into a archive of all the relevant figures, publications, and eras related to the history of women in Iran, and as a researcher and writer, I know I will refer back to it in the future.' - Mahsa Alimardani, internet researcher and Iran editor, Global This is a remarkable book. Nina Ansary explodes some of the myths and prejudices held about Iranian women across the centuries. This volume is an invaluable addition to the existing literature on the subject and a must read for all those who are interested in understanding Islam and feminisms and in the celebration of differences and diversities within the feminist movements. - Baroness Afshar of Heslington, Professor, Academy of Social Sciences, University of York Jewels of Allah: The Untold Story of Women in Iran is an important journey through time, amplifying the powerful voices behind the Iranian women s movement. Author Nina Ansary highlights the courageous women and their progressive steps forward throughout history. The book is an eye opener, from a misunderstood story to how women s empowerment really advanced. It s an enlightening and fearless journey that s important for women around the world to learn. - Deirdre Breackenridge, author, speaker and CEO, Pure Performance Communications --

'Nina Ansary takes a fresh look at the women's movement in modern Iran; a century-long struggle for equality in a historic civilization, and one of the most vibrant feminist movements in the Middle East.' --Negar Mortazavi, Iranian American Journalist and Analyst An elegant and enlightening experience Jewels of Allah contains critical talking points, facts, and research that will empower its readers to more effectively understand the winds of change that are contributing to the empowerment movement of Iranian women. --Yasamin Beitollahi, Digital Media Professional & Huffington Post Contributor 'You can wrap them up in cloths not of their choosing but their powerful spirit still shines through. The Iranian women have always found a way to express themselves, make their presence felt and impact the society. This all comes through Dr. Ansary s book which expertly highlights the challenges and the opportunities facing Iranian women during the secular Pahlavi dynasty and during the various presidencies of the current theocracy.' --Dr. Firouz Naderi, Director for Solar System Exploration at NASA's JPL -- --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié.

Présentation de l'éditeur

The popular narrative about women s lives in Iran over the last forty years goes something like this: 'During the Pahlavi Monarchy, women were on an upward trajectory. In a nation on the cusp of modernity, women actively participated. They were given the right to vote and were free to be in public without veils; they wore miniskirts on university campuses. Then came the Islamic Revolution in 1979, with Ayatollah Khomeini at the helm. The burgeoning freedoms for women were extinguished. The veil was required and institutions were segregated by gender. The Islamic Republic had thus achieved its goal of resurrecting the image of the traditional Muslim woman.' The problem with popular narratives is that, despite their convenient half-truths, the real story is more complicated, unexpected, and less tidy. Inspired by author Nina Ansary s scholarly journey, Jewels of Allah is a provocative roller coaster ride that shatters the stereotypical assumptions and the often misunderstood story of women in Iran today. Highlighting many courageous female leaders and advocates throughout Iran s history, the book illuminates the unanticipated consequences of the Islamic Revolution and the unexpected twists and turns leading to a full-blown feminist movement within a post-revolutionary patriarchal society. Jewels of Allah is dedicated to every individual oppressed by discriminatory ideology. 100% of all proceeds from the sale of the book will go to charitable organizations and institutions, with the primary recipient being the OMID Foundation, a 501(c)(3) registered organization that has been empowering disadvantaged young women in Iran for over 10 years.
