dc.description.abstractFor a final paper, I wanted to research what life was like for the women of Iran today. I had heard so much about their plight but I had never been experienced it first hand. I was deeply drawn to it, perhaps to learn about my family abroad and to reach my Iranian grandmother who I also wasn't able to meet before she died. This endeavor proved to be difficult due to lack of credible sources. My accumulation of experiential knowledge of Persians was minimal. My family would often go to or host "Persian parties" where all the Iranian families in the area would get together and reminisce, debate, and generally have a good time: the men on the lawn, the women at the kitchen table chatting over fruit and tea. Really, the men were loosely friends but connected through heritage and common experience, and, as for the wives and children, they, often uncomfortably, tolerated each other, some caught in a competition of fashion and the display of wealth.en_US
