About The Book
In Iran, the Islamic revolution of 1979 transformed all areas of Iranian life. For women, the consequences were extensive and profound, as the state set out to reverse legal and social rights women had won and to dictate many aspects of women’s lives, including what they could study and how they must dress and relate to men. Reconstructed Lives presents Iranian women telling in their own words what the revolution attempted and how they responded. Through a series of interviews with professional and working women in Iran — doctors, lawyers, writers, professors, secretaries, businesswomen — Haleh Esfandiari gathers telling accounts of what has happened to their lives as women in an Islamic society. She and her informants describe strategies by which women try to and sometimes succeed in subverting the state’s agenda. Esfandiari also provides historical background on the women’s movement in Iran. She finds evidence in Iran’s experience that even women from “traditional” and working classes do not easily surrender rights or access they have gained to education, career opportunities, and a public role.
