I’ve never done this and usually Nazi Kaviani invites people to write but I’d like to ask fellow contributors to write a piece about the remarks made by Shadi Sadr that ALL Iranian men are chauvinists and as a nation we need to overcome this problem. While this ALL statement may not be a complete representative of her remarks everyone is welcome to read the original article, I couldn’t find an English version. Do you think ALL Iranian men are chauvinists?
There are just a few suggestions as guidelines and I don’t know if anyone will respond but should you decide to accept this mission :-)
- Please use the title Chauvinists vs. Shadi Sadr: ______ (followed by your title)
- Your piece can be in English or Farsi
- Your piece can be of any form; poem, cartoon, blog or even a belog!
- Your piece can be for or against Ms. Sadr’s remarks, as long as it is your view
- Your piece can also be about feminism or women’s rights as it relates to Ms. Sadr’s remarks
- Try to keep your piece under 2000 words
- Please provide a link to this invitation in your piece so I can later post links here
I urge everyone to join and contribute as this is an important enough issue and Ms. Sadr’s comments are bold enough to explore further.
A background for Shadi Sadr can be found here and last month she was sentenced in absentia to six years in jail and 74 lashes. 74 lashes!
