“Climbing Over Grit” – MARZEEH LALEH CHINI / Abnoos Mosleh Shirazi


God, what a journey ….

What would be next?!


Ήξερα ότι  στο Ιράν, οι γυναίκες αντιμετωπίζουν διακρίσεις σε κάθε πτυχή της ζωής τους, συμπεριλαμβανομένων των ζητημάτων γάμου, διαζυγίου και επιμέλειας, ίσης μεταχείρισης, πολιτικής θητείας και οικογενειακού και ποινικού δικαίου, αλλά είναι η πρώτη φορά που τα συνειδητοποίησα όλα αυτά, διαβάζοντας ένα εξαιρετικό βιβλίο με ιστορικό και κοινωνικο-πολιτιστικό ενδιαφέρον με τον τίτλο:

“Climbing Over Grit”  των MARZEEH LALEH CHINI και Abnoos Mosleh Shirazi

Στο δυτικό κόσμο είναι δύσκολο να συνειδητοποιηθεί αυτή η υποταγή των γυναικών, αλλά πιστέψτε με ότι αξίζει τον κόπο να διαβάσετε αυτό το βιβλίο και θα καταλάβετε πολλά !!!

I knew than in Iran, women face discrimination in every aspect of their lives, including on issues of marriage, divorce and custody, equal inheritance, political office and family and criminal law, but it is the first time that I realized all these,  reading an excellent book  with historical and socio-cultural interest with the title:

“Climbing Over Grit” by MARZEEH LALEH CHINI, Abnoos Mosleh Shirazi

To western eyes the subservience of women is hard to read about but believe me it worth to read this book and you will understand so many!!!

    • The year is 1954 in Shiraz, Iran. Three-year-old Najma is struggling in a family who is wealthy in possessions but impoverished in love and emotions.

      CLIMBING OVER GRIT follows the journey of Najma as she is forced into a marriage at the age of eleven and faces the challenges of motherhood with an abusive husband, all while the eight-year war with Iraq is taking place. This novel displays the life of a family that has to pay a huge price for making a mistake while trying to protect a loved one.

      CLIMBING OVER GRIT will offer a realistic and heart wrenching portrayal of life in Iran during the Monarchy and the fanatical government, a reality that the media has and will always fail to convey.

    • Every chapter has a great theme for deep thoughts!! Words are never adequate in situations like these and there are no words to express my sorrow Laleh!
      I’m sorry you are going through this. It must be very scary for all your family. But I just want you to know that I love you more now and I will always pray for happiness to all of you!!!
      You turn your wounds into wisdom you are such a brave woman!!!
