The first analysis of how Western and Iranian feminism both converge and
conflict.

RETHINKING GLOBAL SISTERHOOD: Western Feminism and Iran
Nima Naghibi
University of Minnesota Press | 232 pages | 2007

Nima Naghibi makes powerful connections among feminism, imperialism, and the
discourses of global sisterhood. Naghibi investigates topics including the
state-sponsored Womenıs Organization of Iran and the involvement of
feminists such as Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem in the Iranian feminism
movement. She also examines the veiled woman in the films of Tahmineh
Milani, Ziba Mir-Hosseini and Kim Longinotto, and Mahnaz Afzali.

³Rethinking Global Sisterhood is an original and long-overdue critical
examination of the representation of Iranian women in the modern era. The
difficult and pressing questions Naghibi raises point to new ways of reading
the realities of gender relations in Iran.² ‹Nasrin Rahimieh
