Iran awakening : a memoir of revolution and hope by Shīrīn ʻIbādī( Book )

39 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The winner of the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize is an advocate for the oppressed, whose spirit has remained strong in the face of political persecution. Best known here as the lawyer working tirelessly on behalf of Canadian photojournalist Zara Kazemi--raped, tortured and murdered in Iran--Dr. Ebadi offers us a vivid picture of the struggles of one woman against the system. The book chronicles her childhood in a loving, untraditional family, her upbringing before the Revolution that toppled the Shah, her marriage and her faith, as well as her life as a mother and lawyer battling an oppressive regime in the courts while bringing up her girls. Outspoken, controversial, Ebadi became the first female judge in Iran; when the religious authorities declared women unfit as judges, she fought her way back as a human rights lawyer, defending women and children in cases that most lawyers were afraid to represent.--From publisher description
Rights & wrongs : the story of women in Islam by Corine Huq( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For centuries the Qu'ran has been interpreted by men to suppress women, but in fact when it was written it represented an enlightened approach to women. Renowned Muslim feminist scholars and journalists, including Asra Q. Nomani, Mona Eltahawy, Azadeh Moaveni, Dr. Amina Wadud, Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl and Asma Gull Hasan, detail how from early on very different understandings of the Qu'ran lead to vastly different translations, with enormous repercussions for women living in different Islamic societies around the world. The film alternates between the history of Mohammad and his women, and issues facing women in Islam today--from wearing of the veil, to praying in the mosque, and attitudes towards domestic violence and honor killings
Iranienne et libre : mon combat pour la justice by Shirin Ebadī( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in French and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait de la couverture : "Avocate et militante des droits de l'homme, Shirin Ebadi incarne aujourd'hui la résistance des femmes iraniennes au pouvoir autocratique du régime islamique de Téhéran. Elle a reçu à ce titre le prix Nobel de la paix en 2003, attribué pour la première fois à une femme musulmane. Ce livre raconte une vie tout entière consacrée à la justice. Au début des années 1970, elle est la première femme à être nommée présidente du tribunal de grande instance de Téhéran, à l'âge de vingt-trois ans. Quelques mois après la révolution islamique de 1979, elle est contrainte de renoncer à ses fonctions. Avocate, elle engage alors un combat quotidien contre le régime, ce qui lui vaut d'être plusieurs fois emprisonnée et même menacée de mort : " Toute personne œuvrant pour les droits de l'homme en Iran doit vivre avec la peur de sa naissance à sa mort, mais j'ai appris à surmonter ma peur." Aujourd'hui, Shirin Ebadi se consacre surtout à la défense des femmes et des enfants, qui subissent de plein fouet, et jusque dans leur chair, la violence de la culture patriarcale iranienne. Mère de deux filles, elle a fondé par ailleurs une Association de défense des enfants dont les droits sont inexistants dans son pays. Ce livre est le récit des combats d'une femme exceptionnelle contre l'obscurantisme religieux et l'oppression des femmes."

Azadeh Moaveni, longtime Middle East correspondent for Time magazine, returns to Iran to cover the rise of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Living and working in Tehran, she finds a nation that openly yearns for freedom and contact with the West but whose economic grievances and nationalist spirit find an outlet in Ahmadinejad's strident pronouncements. And then the unexpected happens: Azadeh falls in love with a young Iranian man and decides to get married and start a family in Tehran. Suddenly, she finds herself navigating an altogether different side of Iranian life. As women are arrested for "immodest dress" and the authorities unleash a campaign of intimidation against journalists, Azadeh is forced to make the hard decision that her family's future lies outside Iran.

Mein Iran : ein Leben zwischen Revolution und Hoffnung by Šīrīn ʻIbādī( Book )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in German and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seit Jahren setzt sich Shirin Ebadi für eine Reform der iranischen Gesellschaft von innen heraus ein. Mit nicht einmal dreissig Jahren wurde Shirin Ebadi 1975 als erste Frau im Iran zur Richterin ernannt und übernahm schon bald den Vorsitz des Teheraner Gerichts. Im Zuge der islamischen Revolution enthob man sie 1979 ihres Amtes und degradierte sie zur Sekretärin. Sie entschloss sich, Anwältin zu werden und widmete ihr Engagement vor allem den Rechten von Frauen und Kindern. Im Jahr 2000 wurde sie aufgrund ihrer Tätigkeit als Verteidigerin vor Gericht angeklagt und schliesslich verhaftet. Doch weder Einzelhaft noch Berufsverbot konnten Shirin Ebadi von ihrem Kampf für Freiheit und Menschenrechte abhalten, für den sie 2003 den Friedensnobelpreis erhielt. Ihre Autobiographie gewährt Einblick in die gesellschaftlichen Strukturen ihres Landes, das zur tickenden Zeitbombe im Nahen Osten geworden ist
Lipstick jihad : a memoir of growing up Iranian in America and American in Iran by Azadeh Moaveni( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As far back as she can remember, Azadeh Moaveni has felt at odds with her tangled identity as an Iranian-American. In suburban America, Azadeh lived in two worlds. At home, she was the daughter of the Iranian exile community, serving tea, clinging to tradition, and dreaming of Tehran. Outside, she was a California girl who practiced yoga and listened to Madonna. For years, she ignored the tense standoff between her two cultures. But college magnified the clash between Iran and America, and after graduating, she moved to Iran as a journalist. This is the story of her search for identity, between two cultures cleaved apart by a violent history. It is also the story of Iran, a restive land lost in the twilight of its revolution. Moaveni's homecoming falls in the heady days of the country's reform movement, when young people demonstrated in the streets and shouted for the Islamic regime to end. In these tumultuous times, she struggles to build a life in a dark country, wholly unlike the luminous, saffron and turquoise-tinted Iran of her imagination. As she leads us through the drug-soaked, underground parties of Tehran, into the hedonistic lives of young people desperate for change, Moaveni paints a rare portrait of Iran's rebellious next generation. The landscape of her Tehran -- ski slopes, fashion shows, malls and cafes -- is populated by a cast of young people whose exuberance and despair brings the modern reality of Iran to vivid life

The storming of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran was a devastating event for this country. It contributed to President Jimmy Carter's defeat in the 1980 election and really shocked the psyche of this nation. But who were those young students who defied the United States? What was their motivation? ABC correspondent Bob Woodruff reports from Tehran, where he met with some of those original hostage takers, young students at the time. Bob will also talk to a group of today's students. More than half of Iran's population was born after the embassy takeover. Do they have the same revolutionary desire to affect political change in their country as those students from a quarter of a century ago? Do they view America as the "Great Satan"? Does the reigning theocracy in Iran stifle them or free them? ABC News also talks to a young Iranian-American journalist, Azadeh Moaveni, author of "Lipstick Jihad," one of the books that have piqued America's interest in Iran. She spent several years reporting from Iran and brings a unique perspective
