Staying Such A Woman


Delicate bodies and frail organs with great spirits and ambitious dreams are the coordinates of women of the land on which they are still faced with a fundamental question: "Is being a woman an opportunity or a threat?"
Hence, to answer the question "Is being a woman an opportunity or a threat?", first, you must separate "gender" from the other segments of a woman's identity. A woman is someone who tries with pride, power and dare to keep all the women of her inside and outside world "alive".

This collection is representative of women in Iran, who are constantly trying to make new transformation to keep women's identity alive, regardless of gender, along with the environmental and virtual changes of women and reduction of the attitudes of misogyny and patriarchy in society.

 

Staying Such A Woman


Delicate bodies and frail organs with great spirits and ambitious dreams are the coordinates of women of the land on which they are still faced with a fundamental question: "Is being a woman an opportunity or a threat?"
Every woman may face a break in her life: A break such as a divorce which is the beginning of a new life to build, or a cancer which can make the word "hope" more meaningful in life. A break is actually a beginning, and woman is the symbol of "germination", a fundamental growth which is necessary in every society.
Each woman of the Iranian society, according to the social identity, the context of family, religion, economy, patriarchy, misogyny, gender discrimination, etc., determines the status of women. Hence, to answer the question "Is being a woman an opportunity or a threat?", first, you must separate "gender" from the other segments of a woman's identity. A woman is someone who tries with pride, power and dare to keep all the women of her inside and outside world "alive".
