HERvoices: In Iran - Project Overview

Summer, 2006

 

Concern:  The U.S. government’s language about, and politics towards, Iran suggest that Iran is vulnerable to further U.S.-initiated tensions.  The American public is hearing a lot about Iran from the U.S. Government’s and U.S. media’s perspective, however is deprived of easy access to the ideas about and on Iran, from the perspectives of those most knowledgeable: the Iranians in Iran, themselves.

 

Solution:  To share a diverse collection of real, Iran-based Iranian voices and perspectives with the American public.

 

 

 

HERvoices:  HERvoices, Inc. is a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit, public charity organization dedicated to increasing global tolerance by bringing the voices of normally-marginalized women and girls into the mainstream, public dialogue through interactive, multi-media presentations.  For more information about our work, please see www.hervoices.org.

 

HERvoices: In Iran (working title, may change):  Working together with Iranian American women and girls, and others interested in Iran, HERvoices aims to collect and compile personal testimonies from a diverse group of Iranian women and girls living in Iran, and then carefully combine them into a sensitive and simple, multi-media presentation that will be toured to schools and other community groups around the U.S., and possibly other countries.  The interviews are being collected for the primary use in the multi-media presentation, however may also be made available on-line and/or in print.

 

Interviewers:  HERvoices is outreaching to Iranian American women and girls, and others interested in Iran, to act as the interviewers of Iranian women and girls living in Iran.  Interviewers are responsible for outreaching to, contacting, and interviewing the interviewees, as well as recording and delivering the interviews, and other materials including photographs, etc., to HERvoices, in a way that is respectful of HERvoices’ Interviewing Guidelines.  To become an interviewer, please contact HERvoices at 202-271-2869 or info@hervoices.org.

 

 

Sometimes, just speaking about your life can inform you of your own importance; and,

Often, hearing about her life can resolve something in you and remind you of your humanity
