Crossing the Red Line: The Struggle for Human Rights in Iran

By Mihrangiz Kar (Author), Paperback

Chronicles of the life of a woman in Iran - a leading feminist activist and human rights lawyer - under the monarchical and Islamic regimes. From such unique perspective, Mehrangiz Kar ties together micro and macro histories to provide a feminist, intellectual, and political portrait of Iran during the 1960's and after. The volume deserves to be read by both generalists and specialists on Islamic law and revolutionary change in Iran.
