Shahrnush Parsipur – Women Without Men


The Right To Exist

In a garden of Karaj, destination and visionary, poetic womb of a Great Mother, the lives of five Iranian women converge and intertwine, to search and to conquer their own right to existence and thinking.

Through watercolor brushstrokes and a narrative balance between reality and magic, Parsipur gives us a real and intense insight into Iran’s male-dominated society and the status of women.
A must-read.
