Resistance of Hidden Voices
MetadataShow full item record
Most women, in my home country, Iran, mainly from lower and middle classes, do not have the same opportunities as women here in Canada. They are struggling even in their daily lives. One of the main reasons for this resides in the deep-rooted beliefs and general understanding of the society about women’s being. These general conceptions or master narratives can shape, influence or change the lives of women. However, in modern times with the growth of education, knowledge, communication with other parts of the world, and increase in women’s awareness, new narratives and concepts are beginning to emerge in Iranian society. Iranian women are not victims. They are under various oppressions but they are not passive. They have showed active resistance towards the oppressions and they are still doing so. My performance about Iranian women’s resistance culture is a resistant action. This paper is about various forms of resistance in Iranian women culture.
