"The Amicale du Conseil de l'Europe and the Kléber bookshop are pleased to welcome Sorour Kasmai, coordinator of the collective work "Woman, dream, freedom", and Bahiyyih Nakhjavani, one of the authors, to discuss of the situation of women in Iran, the repression to which they are subjected, and their dreams of freedom.
"What does it mean to be a woman today in Iran? What place do they occupy in a society ruled for more than four decades by an exclusively male totalitarian theocracy? What are the reasons for the anger that has engulfed the country since September 16, 2022, the day the young Mahsa Jina Amini succumbed to the beatings of the morality police? How do men position themselves in the face of their demands?
At the invitation of Sorour Kasmaï, twelve Iranian authors tell in this collection, in various forms, what evoke for them the three words that resonate since: WOMAN, LIFE, FREEDOM. In support of those who have rebelled with such courage against tyranny, here are twelve stories, twelve voices that come to unite to the cry of this revolt that does not go away. So that we do not forget it.
The following contributed to this collection: Sahar Delijani, Fahimeh Farsaie, Sorour Kasmaï, Zahra Khanloo, Azar Mahloujian, Nasim Marashi, Aida Moradi Ahani, Bahiyyih Nakhjavani, Asieh Nezam Shahidi, Parisa Reza, Rana Soleimani and Fariba Vafi.
Exclusive meeting on October 16 at 1:30 pm at the Palais de l'Europe, room 9 and at 5 pm at the Kléber bookstore, clean room.
