In conjunction with the Poetic Voices of the Muslim World project, professor of Persian literature, Dr. Farzaneh Milani, explores the work of three great Iranian women poets of the 20th Century -- classical poet Parvin E'tesami, iconoclastic modernist Forugh Farrokhzad and the "Lioness of Iran" Simin Behbahani. Dr. Milani demonstrates how Iranian women have emerged as a moderating, modernizing force at the forefront of the renegotiation of boundaries in their homeland.
