Author Dr. Nina Ansary and artist Shirin Neshat discuss women in Iran in general, and Neshat and her work in particular. Their conversation will be followed by a booksigning with Ansary, whose book Jewels of Allah challenges the often misunderstood story of women in Iran today by highlighting female leaders and activists throughout Iran’s history and illuminating the unanticipated consequences of the Islamic Revolution and the trajectory of Iran’s feminist movement.
