Lolita in Tehran
By af3440, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
Sanaz says her goodbyes and puts on her black robe and scarf over her orange shirt and jeans, coiling her scarf around her neck to cover her huge gold earrings.
It is in her best interest not to be seen, not be hear or noticed. She doesn't walk upright, but bends her head towards the ground and doesn't look at passersby.
She will pass slogans on the walls, quotations from Khomeini and a group called the Party of God:
MEN WHO WEAR TIES ARE U.S. LACKEYS.
VEILING IS A WOMAN'S PROTECTION
Buses were segregated: woman in the back, so Sanaz entered through the back to avoid humiliation.
In the course of nearly two decades, the streets have been turned into a war zone. .
Women who disobey rules are hurled into patrol cars, taken to jail, flogged, fined, forced to wash the toilets and humiliated.
They were never free of the regime's definition of them as Muslim women, didn't matter their identity.
These are women who dealt with a struggle. Waking up in the morning and being hurt when leaving home was their daily routine.
