I certainly appreciate your comments, however I feel that the main point of this blog is lost to heated arguments about Shah, Fallaci’s work and …..
This blog is not about Shah. It is not even about his opinion being right or wrong. It is about whether or not his views, are a reflection of our society’s opinion about women ? The answer to this question is important, because people tend to internalize the dominant beliefs of their society. Almost all Iranian women were either born/raised or have been raised by mothers who have been influenced by society’s teachings during Shah’s era. Having knowledge of our society’ beliefs can help us better understand some of the issues that the Iranian women are struggling with.
I hope this blog is more clear.
