Journal Entry 1 by Shahrun from Dagenham, Essex United Kingdom on Wednesday, September 18, 2019
My father is Persian and he has a large family there who I have never met because I have never been to Iran and don’t even speak the language. I’m so jealous of the authors experiences of living and traveling around Iran. She has seen so many different places and met some very extraordinary women. This book didn’t go as deep as I would have liked (or perhaps as the author would have liked either). I suspect it is due to fear of the Iranian regime and the danger to the women who live there? I was still surprised with the women who were willing to come forward and put their stories on record. There have been some very remarkable achievements that the author uncovers. I appreciate the fact that she didn’t seem to be judging the country or it’s people, she was trying to present what she found and let the reader firm an opinion. Most of the book felt quite was positive to me, which I didn’t expect. That perhaps the revolution did actually did bring improvements to women’s lives, especially in education. There is still a long way to go, but I don’t think any country has it right yet anyway. I enjoyed learning a little about Iranian culture and was surprised that I may have more than just the blood flowing through my veins. I would have liked a chapter on the author as she gave some interesting titbits but no depth on her own experience, like why was she having Persian language lessons? Were they compulsory or was she genuinely trying to connect with people. I have so many questions I want to ask now.
