Rate this:
An opaque veil, gloved hands, and long black flowing garments-these are among the images that Westerners most commonly associate with Iranian women. In this program, National Geographic photographer Alexandra Avakian sets out to dispel long-held stereotypes as she ventures behind the veils of women in Iran, ultimately discovering a tough and spirited female community. The New York City native also delves into Iran's underground youth culture and travels to her ancestral village in search of the grave of her great-great-grandmother.
