Reviews
"This book offers a comprehensive account of Iranian women activists’ successful awareness-raising efforts on a grassroots level, and their achievement of a higher level of consciousness in the process."
—Shirin Ebadi, Nobel Peace Laureate 2003

"This story is a must-read for all those who cherish democracy and freedom...it testifies to the vitality, dynamism, and irrepressible spirit of the women who risked their lives and livelihoods for freedom."
—Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Tehran

Description
The One Million Signatures Campaign for the Reform of Discriminatory Laws is an extraordinary phenomenon. It is democratic, nonhierarchical, open, and evolving in a polity that is none of those things. Iranian activist Noushin Ahmadi Khorasani chronicles the campaign’s efforts and provides a valuable case study of how to build a movement in the twenty-first century, not only to bring change in societies ruled by autocratic governments or influenced by radical fundamentalism, but also in the more open and tolerant societies that have yet to achieve full equality for women.

Author
Noushin Ahmadi Khorasani is one of Iran’s leading women’s rights activists. She is a founding member of the One Million Signatures Campaign and Women’s Cultural Center, editor of the journals Second Sex and Womens Quarterly, and founding editor of the websites Feminist School and Zanestan.
