Surprising New Book on Women in Iran

Persian Women in Jewels of AllahProminent Iranian Feminist on the Complicated Story of Persian Women

Dr. Nina Ansary’s new book, Jewels of Allah: The Untold Story of Women in Iran tells the untold, true story of women in Iran, revealing a global sisterhood of women who, from the beginning of time, have transcended boundaries of religion, race, and culture.

Inspired by Ansary’s own scholarly journey, Jewels of Allah is a provocative roller coaster ride that shatters stereotypical assumptions about women in Iran today as it highlights many of the courageous female leaders and advocates throughout Iran’s history. The book illuminates the unanticipated consequences of the Islamic revolution with its unexpected twists and turns that have led to a full-blown feminist movement within a post-revolutionary patriarchal society. Currently, Jewels of Allah is the number #1 Bestseller in Women in History, History Iran, and Women in Politics on Amazon and #35 of all bestselling books on Amazon.
