Not all teats


Multiple Personality Disorder
by Multiple Personality Disorder



These are some of my favorite contemporary Iranian women in Iran.  This is just a brief list, only the ones that I could find a picture of with a quick search, and in no way this is a complete list.  These women are not all about teats, but it's good to know that they have them, more than some men have balls, including myself, to be honest with you.

Noushafarin Ansari,  librarian, educator, university professor


SiminBehbahani, poet, 1997 Nobel Prize nominee (Literature)


Shirin Ebadi,  lawyer, human rights activist, Nobel Peace Prize recipient


Laleh Seddigh,  race car drivers, PhD student


Mehrangiz Kar,  lawyer, human rights activist, author


Mahnaz Afshar,  actress


Shadi Sadr,  lawyer defending execution cases, women’s rights activist, journalist


Tahmineh Milani,  film director, screenwriter, producer

Oh, I have no doubt, MPD

What I meant by men like you was men who have their priorities straight and can exercise enough self-restraints not to drool over every naked body they see. :)

Thank you all

Thank you Nazy Kaviani for your passionate comment and the additional names.  I wish I had more time yesterday to write in more.

Thank you Souri for your support.

Yolanda, thank you for showing so much interest in our culture and your concern for human rights violation in Iran.

Latina, or under any other name, you've always been a great supporter and I really appreciate it.

Patriot, thank you for the name and the link.

Marge, thank you for mentioning the name of Zahra Kazemi.  It's a shame that the real culpirts in her murder are still walking around free, but one there will be justice.

Thank you Azadeh Azad for the link and your support.

Thank you Anahid Hojjati for your hopes of government that would appreciate the contribution of Iranian women in the society.

Princess, there Iranian men everywhere who understand the key to Iran's liberation is the "Iranian Woman".

AsteroidX, your comment is appreciated.

Mona 19, I'm glad you also liked this blog.

Gavazn, I have nothing against "Mellons", it's the appropriateness of it on the International Women's Day that I was concern about.  Thank you.

capt_ayhab, ALL and EVERY intelligent, brilliant and hard working Iranian mothers, sisters and daughters is added to my list, as always.  Thank you.

Such  excellent choices.

May I suggest adding a few?

ALL and EVERY intelligent, brilliant and hard working Iranian mothers, sisters and daughter to your list.

This should have been top blog on Womens Day. It is really considerate of you to write this. I think the "Mellons" blog is still getting comments though ...

Anahid Hojjati


ام پی دی , ممنون که لینک گذاشتی به زنانی که واقعأ شیرزن هستند مثل شادی صدر , سیمین بهبهانی , شیرین عبادی و دیگران .  متاسفانه این زنان در ایران مورد آزار هستند .

به امید روزی که دولتی در ایران داشته باشیم که از چنین شیر زنانی قدردانی کند نه اینکه آنان را دستگیر و زندانی بکند .

Azadeh Azad

Happy Women's Day everyone

Thank you, dear MPD, for this blog. The following is a list of Iranian women who have made achievements in different domains, from Politics to Sciences to Arts.


We shall overcome,


Ps. Marge, why do you think Zahra Kazemi was nuts?

I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek

as nuts as she was

The brave, late Zahra Kazemi. Her murder exposed this regime and its international support system.


My favorite Iranian woman...

by Patriot on Mrs. Mahlagha Mallah.  She is a 92-year old environmental activist in Iran.  She has tried to save trees, forrests, and ecosystems all over Iran.  She is an inspiration to all Iranians, men or women.

Hi! MPD,

 Thank you for your timely blog! My favorites are #2 and #3 on your list. I read a lot about Simin and blogged about her....the lady is very brave, cool, and patriotic. I hope she gets nominated again and wins Nobel Prize before it is too late:



P.S.   IRI banned Simin from leaving the country on Women's Day:




Thank you very much dear MPD
