We are excited to announce that Nina Ansary’s book, Jewels of Allah, will be launching 25 June 2015. All proceeds from the sale of Nina’s book will go to charities close to Nina’s heart, with the primary recipient being the OMID Foundation. Inspired by the author’s scholarly journey, Jewels of Allah is a provocative roller coaster ride that shatters the stereotypical assumptions and the often misunderstood story of women in Iran today. Highlighting many courageous female leaders and advocates throughout Iran’s history, the book illuminates the unanticipated consequences of the Islamic Revolution and the unexpected twists and turns leading to a full-blown feminist movement within a post-revolutionary patriarchal society.
