Nina Ansary- Jewels of Allah

"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." 📸 www.ninaansary.com

Firoozeh Dumas - It Ain't so awful falafel

Firoozeh Dumas - Funny in Farsi

Firoozeh Dumas - Laughing without an Accent

 "Being the only Iranian in my school made me an instant outsider, but this became a huge advantage in my life. I learned early on to find commonalities with people who come from entirely different backgrounds. I learned as a child that the human experience is entirely universal. We may speak different languages or eat different foods, but at the end of day, we are looking for a safe place to live and the opportunity to become the best versions of ourselves. To this day, put me in a room full of strangers and I start making friends right away. My husband says that I could find meaningful conversation with a tree. This is true! Now I just need to find a talking tree." - 📸 firoozehdumas.com
