A PERSIAN WOMAN SPEAKS – A PROFOUND MESSAGE!
“We need a revolution that connects the hearts of everyone” … a Persian woman living in the US talks to us from her heart.
Maryam Karim was born in Iran and came to the United States when she was 17. Since being in the United States she has witnessed tremendous change in women from her country and how they are influenced by our western society. She is a writer, an activist and very observant of how women from her culture relate to their feminine power.
As we listen with amazement to this Persian woman, we have a chance to learn more about Iran (Persia) …“Iran is one of the world’s oldest civilizations and has been among the world’s most thoughtful and complex civilizations from the very beginning. There are aspects of Iranian civilization that, in one way or another, have touched almost every human being on the planet.” (Michael Axworthy, A HISTORY OF IRAN: Empire of the Mind) IRAN = PERSIA … Iran is the political name – Persia is the cultural name.
