Iranian of the day

October 25, 2005

In 2002 anthropologist Shahdokht Javan published her first novel, Je viens díailleurs, to tell her story. A year later, Bas les voiles! (Down with the Veil !), which condemned the Muslim veil worldwide, earned her sudden notoriety as well as threatening phone calls. In 2004, she was again brought into the limelight, for the publication of Que pense Allah de líEurope? (What does Allah think of Europe ?) translated into German and Italian. Her articles and interviews are periodically published in the French national press (Le Point, Libération, le Figaro). She has often appeared on TV . She also gives lectures at the French Senate and National Assembly, la Mairie de Paris, the Assembly of Women and LICRA (International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism) which awarded her the International Prize for Secularism in 2004.
