I couldn’t separate Iran from the rest of the world. We all are in the same boat that is running fast with the current towards a future full of more misery unless we do something about it. In Iran, the same as in the rest of the world – we need a just system that safeguards freedom and equality.

Nasrin Parvaz became a civil rights activist when the Islamic regime took power in 1979. She was arrested in 1982 and spent eight years in prison. 

You can find Nasrin on her website and  Twitter. Her novel, The Secret Letters from X to A is available here.  Here is an interview with Nasrin discussing her memoir, One Woman’s Struggle in Iran here.

Maryam Babaali is a Kurdish writer, poet, filmmaker and librarian living in Melbourne, Australia. She is currently working on a film project with Bill Mousoulis and Angelo Salamanca called Broken Boat.


Memoria is written, produced, edited and presented by Nat V.

Nasrin Parvaz’s short story, A Woman’s Struggle in Iran, is written by Nasrin and read by Maryam Babaali.

Music in this episode is by Blue Dot Sessions, “Mogul” and “November Mist”.

Illustrations by Peta Manning. Her book, See Me Doodle, is out now.
