Summary
"A photo on Masih Alinejad's Facebook page: a woman standing proudly, face bare, hair blowing in the wind. Her crime: removing her veil, or hijab, which is compulsory for women in Iran. This is the self-portrait that launched "My Stealthy Freedom," a social media campaign that went viral. But Alinejad is so much more that the arresting face that sparked a campaign urging women to find their voices. She grew up in a traditional village where, unlike her brother, she could not run, swim, or ride a bike. Fighting against the misogynist culture and restrictions of her beloved country, she became a world-class journalist whose personal story, told in her bold and spirited voice, is emotional and inspiring. A testament to a spirit that remains unbroken, and an enlightening, intimate invitation into a world we don't know nearly enough about, The Wind in My Hiar is the unforgettable true story of a woman who overcame enormous adversity to fight for what she believes in, and to encourage others to do the same." -- back cover
